Testimonials

The true multi-cultural community of ISBerne is a huge strength of the school. Students learn to debate each other and learn new points of view respectfully. A globally-minded child is very valuable.

I love our new cafeteria! There is always a variety of delicious food and the staff are incredibly friendly!

The International Baccalaureate teachers give above and beyond the level of excellent support for IB students with help during breaks and may extra hours to seek support and help. My child's teachers have worked hard to help my child succeed.

We appreciate ISBerne’s unique qualities - such as its small size, the interaction between classes and year groups, the attention to a holistic inquisitive approach to learning.

ISBerne is vibrant, multi-cultural and open.

ISBerne is truly international and yet homey.

The people who work in the cafeteria are amazing. They make the cafeteria such a welcoming environment. Always a smile on their faces.
