5 Questions to Ask a Prospective International School
1. Understand a School’s Vision and Ethos
Many schools have a vision statement, the best ones have an enduring vision that transcends individual concerns and permeates the entire school culture to the betterment of all. Here at Brighton, our ethos is based on kindness and excellence, and we believe the interplay of concurrent social, moral and intellectual development provides a cornerstone of a truly vibrant, diverse, and profoundly positive culture of learning.
2. Explore the Culture of a School
International school students have complex, multi-faceted growth paths that provide unique challenges and opportunities both academically and socially. The most positive international school experiences occur when these are met in a spirit of unity in diversity, openness, and a common pursuit of excellence and personal growth.
At Brighton, diverse cultures, viewpoints and people are all celebrated both individually and collectively, and this broad base of acceptance paves the way for every student to forge their unique path of outstanding academic and personal growth.
