Our learning culture at BIBA is one that combines rigor, discipline, and traditions of Chinese teaching methods with the vibrant stimulating, and outward-looking creativity of international methods. The fundamental to the success of our program is the passion of our foreign and Chinese teaching staff members. They deliver not only our various academic programs (US national Standards, Chinese National Standards, MYP, IGCSE, and IBDP, but also they play an important role via many non-academic initiatives, in the development of a holistic student approach. Aiming in hopes that BIBA students will be confident, competent, and well equipped to take on the challenges of our modern society with an international-mindedness.
