Instructional Approach

At BILA, we envision students who actively participate in their learning by questioning their scholarship and the world in which they live, are reflective about their roles in the world, and who, through their endeavors, demonstrate their eagerness to move to the next level of learning.

Our Curriculum is based on the Inquiry Method, Learn more here.

Advisory/Social Emotional Learning

At BILA we believe in educating the "whole" child.  That involves meeting the social and emotional needs of our students as well as providing a strong academic background.

Check out our Advisory page for more information.
