The world is but a school of inquiry

Michel De Montaigne

A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all students are introduced to the essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and applications of science. Students are encouraged by meaningful examples to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.

Inquiry based learning is at the heart of Sciences at The British International School of New York. Speakers, field trips, presentations, lab-work, research and interdisciplinary units are vehicles used to drive exploration and depth of learning in the sciences at BIS-NY. Concepts in mathematics, art and technology are all integrated to reinforce the broad reach of the application of science across the world.

Although broad in scope and capturing the essence of the philosophy of the International Baccalaureate and the rigor of the English National Curriculum, students also have the opportunity to extend and enrich the curriculum even further, preparing them for the next stage on their educational journey through science competitions and STEM fairs both nationally and internationally.
