Bratislava - School Report Question and Answers

Please tell us anything else you think prospective parents and students should know about this school. Thanks for your contribution!

Be patient with the administration - they can be difficult to handle at first and sometimes over-communicative. But they are committed to doing what is best for your child. We learned of our son's ADHD and mild autism a week before moving to Bratislava, so it was basically too late to turn back and we had to make it work. The RMO-P that covers our post was concerned they would expel our son if he had any ADHD/Austism-related outbursts and recommended that we either curtail or put him on ADHD meds right away (both of which we refused to do until we knew it was absolutely necessary). However, the complete opposite happened when he exhibited these behaviors - his teacher and the school admins recognized his need for extra support and were committed to getting that support for him (opposite of our experience in his Virginia school when he had outbursts which we didn't know they were due to any actual disorders. Our biggest difficulty with BISB was getting the money approved by MED for that support, which took time). Ever since he started receiving the extra support, he's been thriving and his behavior has dramatically improved. They clearly love our son and care about the children at their school. - Sep 2018
