We couldn't be happier at BASC! It is a positive, warm, intellectually challenging environment where our son has just flourished. He actually BEGS me to let him stay at school longer during the day. The coursework is challenging, but he is more than keeping pace - and we are gaining confidence right along with him in his ability to learn, grasp difficult concepts and succeed in a learning environment. We know this is due to the individualized learning and excellent student to teacher ratios. We wish there were more sports options for when he gets older - but that program is growing, and we can take him to other programs for good sports education. For his academic and social growth - BASC is the best!
We are exrememly happy with the BASC and it is a good fit for our son. I would like to comment however, on a recent experience we had at the school..... We had the opportunity to attend a 'Celebration Assembly' - a twice per month morning gathering of the entire school and staff, during which students selected by their teacher are recognized and awarded for a particular achievement, whether it be academic or in an area of personal growth. We of course, were very proud of our son but we also enjoyed seeing the other students. They were so cute and you can't help but smile when you see the pride not only in their parent's faces but their own faces too!
As parents of three children we have come to understand that each of them need a different type of learning environment & we are pleased to say that our son has slotted into the family community that BASC is as if he had been there forever instead of just a few weeks. He leaves school, everyday, full of news & learning experiences & a tired brain! So far our expectations have been met & even exceeded in some areas.
Dissapointing.. my daughter actually regressed in some of her reading and handwriting during her short time at this school. New focus on revenue not quality has effected classroom experience. This school does not deliver on its promises.
The perfect school for my daughter! Now in her second year, she is successful, learning at an accelerated rate and just thriving at BASC. The teachers create exciting curricula based on the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and allow each child to work at his/her own pace. I am impressed by the school s globalization, personalization of learning and expectations of the students. Excellence is the norm, not the exception, and her love of school is a joy to experience. I am thrilled that my daughter is part of the amazing academic and social environment at BASC.
It is great to see your children love to learn, be a part of an international community and more importantly receive personalized learning to meet their individual needs. The school's approach is geared to help them understand how to creatively solve problems, be a global citizen and to prepare them to be future leaders in our changing world. The best part is that they have fun and are excited about going to school!
My two kids (6 & 9 ys old) have spent the past 3 academic years at the British American School of Charlotte. I am still amazed on a daily basis at the high quality of teaching there along with the amazing atmosphere among students. The school not only offers an outstanding individualized curriculum but it also greatly emphasizes social skills among students (i.e. responsibility, respect, politeness ) as good behaviors are always celebrated. I also love the fact that older kids regularly interact with younger kids whereas reading books to little ones, helping them with their lunch
Alas! a private school which will work to address the needs of 'very 'highly gifted kids as well .Our son, who has recently moved from a program exclusively for such kids, absolutely loves the fun way of teaching provided here and says he likes learning even more than playing at BASC!
My children have excelled academically beyond my expectations here. The school is amazing as it offers individualized instruction and teaches to all learning styles.
This is a fantastic school with a caring environment,but one that challanges and expects exellence from its pupils
A wonderful school. My 6 year old is thriving at British American. The teachers tailor each lesson to the individual child, with each working at his/her own pace. We have seen tremendous gains in his self confidence and love of school. I am impressed by how much his handwriting and spelling have improved. The school focuses on positive reinforcement. They try and 'catch a child being good.' I've seen teacher's help children work on conflict resolution on the playground. After school programs range from karate to science to drama to Spanish. Piano lessons are offered during the day, if you choose to sign up. Overall, a fantastic school and we feel very blessed that we are a part of it.
