This is a teach to the test school. My son is advance in mathematics and this school has no way to challenge him. It all about test scores here. It is also about who you know here to get you kid into a so called gifted class.

I had 3 daughters at BIS last year, and this year one went on to middle school but the other 2 are still there. It is a well organized, great school! Most teachers check email daily, and I loved being able to keep in touch that way. My girls love going there. The only issue I had was with a required book in 6th grade that I didn't think was appropriate (titled: Wait til Helen comes). It has mature themes of death, murder, ghosts, etc. But teachers have been good about reassigning another book for my daughter(s). Overall, a super school.

My son attended fifth grade here and had a wonderful experience. The curriculum was advanced enough to keep him striving and learning. Ms. Potetz and the art teacher are fabulous!

My son is in the 5th grade a Berlin Intermediate School. This is his first year there and so far has had a very positive experience there. The teachers are friendly and very helpful as are the office staff. The principal, Dr. Gaddis, is also a wonderful person and has only your child's best interest at heart. I was a little worried about my son attending BIS but was also glad that Dr. Gaddis is the principal (he was at Buckingham Elementary when my son started Pre-K). My son is very happy to be there.
