Library & Research
The library is at the heart of the education journey for all of our students.
Data capture, evaluation and concept dissemination are fundamental components of learning and permeate our inquiry-based philosophy and two logical arenas for such skills are the library and the meaningful use of ICT. As technology makes information increasingly accessible, students are encouraged to explore differing means of seeking and researching information. Through the collection of data and the reporting of their findings, students learn to develop and defend a position.
At BIS-NY the concept of a library encompasses much more than just the room itself. With guidance from our librarian, the library becomes a place within which our students can focus and explore their own interests. Students become masters at navigating resources, both physical and electronic; learning to evaluate, distill and use information, empowering them with the tools and knowledge to succeed.
Throughout the school, enthusiasm for books and reading is encouraged and we take great pride in nurturing high-level literacy and reading skills, informing and challenging our students and motivating them to expand their reading experiences.
