  • who scored in the 97th percentile and above
  • BSI is listed as an option for your child in the communications you received from the Office of Student Enrollment

Note: Because of space constraints, we will only be able to welcome a maximum of two adults from each eligible student’s family. Sorry, but no children may attend the tours; these are information sessions geared to adults only, and adults accompanied by children will not be admitted. (Exceptions can be made for infants under a year old carried in arms or strap-on infant carriers; please contact

Please note that street parking in the area around the school can be challenging, and allow extra time for parking if you are coming by car; we will begin each session promptly, and after a certain point, latecomers will not be able to tour the school facilities.

  • 8:40 am – 9:20 am Tour of the school facilities led by parents of current BSI students.
  • 9:20 am – 9:30 am Welcome to BSI.

A PTO-sponsored social event will be held in late June for all BSI families, including families of students who have accepted places at BSI for September 2018; more information about that event should be available at in May.

We are looking forward to seeing you soon,

Mrs. Moshura
