You may have noticed that ISB is hosting special visitors this week - these are the members of the Council of International School. Yesterday they also met with the representatives of both primary and secondary councils.
My two boys started school at ISB in September 2015. One in grade 1 and the other in grade 3. (Both are not native English speakers.) I (as a mom) found sending them to school for the first day really scary. New country, new city, new school and even a new Language. They came home happy and just after a couple of weeks the boys started to speak English and they were really beginning to feel at home in school. The Staff, teachers and other parents have been a great help with adjusting not only to school life, but also to life in Brno in general. The atmosphere in school is really welcoming and warm. There is always a listening ear. Also the PTA has been a great help, connecting with other parents and really feeling part of the ISB community. So far it has been a great experience for us!
I am writing this review of the International School of Brno on Čejkovická street with great love. My son attended this school from grade 1 to grade 3. Unfortunately I had to move with my son to the States due to work reasons. We miss ISB a lot in the States and already are planning return to the Czech Republic.
My daughter has attended the ISOB for 3 years and she loves it! Every day she comes home and tells me all about the things that she learns. The classes are small and very diverse with kids from various cultures.
