Learning is meaningful and linked to real world situations in order for students to be engaged learners. As JBS is a growing learning community of over 85 different nationalities the needs of our students vary. We share our diversity on a daily basis both inside and outside the classroom in order to enrich the learning experience for our students and the whole school community. Differentiation regarding students’ language needs, educational background and cognitive abilities takes place in our lessons. Opportunities are given to students to develop an awareness of their learning styles through a variety of tasks such as portfolios, presentations, student led conferences and reflections. JBS offers a wide range of activities to students through our Extra-Curricular Activities programme (ECA’s): football, tennis, rugby, volleyball, basketball, swimming, badminton, drama, dance, guitar and choir, public speaking, Model United Nations, The Duke of Edinburgh Award and the Scholars Cup to name a few. The ECAs and other special programmes enhance the academic offerings and provide authentic extensions to what the students learn in class. Students are also given opportunities to develop leadership skills by running the Student Council, clubs, and committees.
