The British International School, Istanbul
Dilhayat Sok 18, Etiler, 80600 Istanbul, Turkey
BISI, which enrolls pupils from roughly 40 nations, conducts a British-style program that utilizes English as the language of instruction. The preschool program, which enrolls children beginning at age 2½, places emphasis upon communication, language and literacy; development of math skills; knowledge and understanding of the world; and creativity. Pupils continue to develop learning and study skills at the primary school level. During these years, the school also conducts a program for gifted students. Course work at the secondary level leads to the IGCSE examinations and the International Baccalaureate Diploma. Special programs in all school divisions serve nonnative speakers of English, as well as those with such learning differences as dyslexia. BISI schedules annual educational trips to locations both in Turkey and abroad as a source of enrichment.
