These courses truly provide students with the skills, preparation and understanding they need to continue their studies in university.  BSS students’ AP test score results exceed international averages. BSS offers 14 Advanced Placement courses including the AP Capstone Diploma program. Students can customize their selections and no matter what academic path students choose to pursue at university, they will be adequately prepared for their Post Secondary education.

Creating a Strong Foundation with Our Middle School Curriculum

During a formative time in our students' lives, the Middle School curriculum provides an exceptional foundation from which students can grow their academic profiles. Through inquiry and project-based education, students develop a love of learning and continue to feel excited about their courses and supported in their learning. The exploratory, integrative approach allows for relevant lessons that help students form their academic interests. This helps build a strong vision of the academic path they want to pursue through Senior School and beyond. 

Our Student Services Team Will Help You Choose Your Path

Course Selection is supported by counselors from our Student Services team who help students recognize their aptitudes, develop their academic and professional skills and explore possible paths for their futures.
