Message from Head of School

Dear BCIS Community,

Welcome to our BCIS community!

Those who already are part of the BCIS community will make reference to our "BCIS family" – BCIS is known to be a nurturing, caring, and compassionate place that believes in the power of relationships and confidence-building. We have an academic program from Toddler to Grade 12 that we are justifiably proud of, personalizing learning for our students, and having them experience their learning through real-life, hands-on experiences. Our teachers are highly qualified and experienced and are committed to our BCIS mission, ensuring our students have access to all they need to be successful. Our parents work together with us as partners and we understand the need for close communication, support and understanding.

BCIS is a school that lives its mission. We wholeheartedly believe in "empowering and inspiring through challenge and compassion," and we invite all our community members to engage with our mission and be conscious about ways to both model and follow the elements within it.

I am proud to be the Head of School at BCIS, having been a part of this community since it opened in 2005. I have felt honored to have worked with all the students and adults who have been a part of the BCIS family over the last 14 years and look forward to the continued collaboration in the future.

You can find me in my office situated in the Elementary School lobby area, and I’ll always be outside on school mornings welcoming students to school.

I welcome you to reach out anytime to connect with me and my colleagues at BCIS.

Kind Regards,

Julie Lawton

Head of School, BCIS
