|Teaching approach of the school||
BIS was established on the philosophy that relevant education is a product of adaptation to the demands of the time and the corresponding new approaches that can be applied in the delivery of such education.
It believes in the enrichment of core competencies and values of the system of education, the utilization of modern trends in class management, the methodology and delivery of subject matter that often spell the success of innovative and relevant education.
As a School that Learns, BIS utilizes the tools and habits of Systems Thinking which is attributed to Peter Senge, MIT Senior Lecturer, Author, and Founding Chair – Society for Organizational Learning (SOL). He says “Systems Thinking integrates the various parts of the system in a way that maximizes organizational effectiveness... The discipline of systems thinking provides a different way of looking at problems and goals not as isolated events but as components of larger structures.”
BIS, therefore, emphasizes the value and agency of human beings, individually and collectively, and generally prefers a balance between critical thinking and emotional stability.
