Welcome to Brent International School Subic.

I would like to welcome all new and returning students to the 2016-2017 school year. It is my hope that this will be one of the best years of your life and that you experience impressive growth academically, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. This is a great place to be so please take full advantage of all we have to offer.

As a Brent student, high expectations are placed upon you. We expect you to be responsible for your own actions and choices. We expect all members of our community to treat one another with respect and compassion. We value hard work and expect you to put forth your best effort in all you do. Academics come first, but we also strongly encourage you to be multi-dimensional. Get involved in sports, drama, music, art, student government and one or more of our many clubs. We value students who are well balanced, have high moral standards, and who have a positive "can do" attitude.

We do encourage constant communication between students, parents, teachers, and the administration. By working together, we can provide the best possible education for all our students. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Have a great year.

Letter from the Middle School Principal

Middle School is an exciting and challenging time for children both educationally and socially.

At BISS we believe in the dignity and worth of each and every student and recognize the importance of their responsibilities to their fellow citizens in the community. We believe that our students should have opportunities for an education consistent with their individual capabilities and with their personal and social needs.

We believe in setting high expectations for students and staff alike. Although academic achievement will be a primary focus, our hope for the students at BISS is to also embrace high standards of civility, character, tolerance and trust. The students here at BISS will be presented with diverse and meaningful experiences that acknowledge each individual's intellectual, physical, social and emotional differences. Taking full advantage of these opportunities will certainly make the middle school years productive and enjoyable.

As our students grow and mature it is important to realize that they all can learn and achieve in the classroom and, at the same time, explore their own special interests in other areas.

Dear Parents and Students,

On behalf of the administration staff, let me extend you a most cordial welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year.

We the Brent International School Subic Lower School, are planning a great school year, full of learning, meaningful activities and community building experiences.

We hope that the child's educational experience is positive, gratifying, and ultimately establishes a sound educational foundation. The teachers work and plan to develop organized, appropriate, and meaningful lessons. We continue to grow as a team and we work hard to build a community. We also believe that communication between school and home is important and advantageous to a child's success in school.

With our exemplary staff, eager and ready to lean students, and supportive parents, we know that we will achieve success. Again, I look forward to this school year. You will find that my basic philosophy as an educator is that "Each Child is Someone's Most Treasured Possession." Thank you for this opportunity to share your child's growth and development!
