Learning through Inquiry

Inquiry is the leading pedagogical approach at BCIS. Learning environments that foster curiosity, a desire to seek understanding and the enjoyment associated with on-going learning are built. Students are actively engaged in their own learning through the application of creative thought, critical reasoning and inspired action.

Students learn best when they are active participants in the process of investigating, synthesizing, analyzing and extending knowledge in an effort to understand the human and natural worlds around them. BCIS embeds opportunities into teaching and learning for first-hand investigations into significant issues and meaningful content. These inquiries allow for the examination of complexities found in our world. With teachers’ guidance students discover and construct understanding of complex problems.


BCIS is accredited by the CIS (Council of International Schools) and WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges), which demonstrates that the school meets demanding international standards in all the areas of philosophy and objectives, curriculum, governance and management, staff, student support services, resources, and student and community life.Visit www.cois.org and www.acswasc.org for more information.
