Words from the Principal:
In our school, your child will flourish as meaningful experiences enrich their days alongside their teachers and peers. We have many exciting plans and are looking forward to another wonderful year of learning, investigating, researching and growing. During this school year, we will continue to build upon and refine our foundation of good work and many worthwhile traditions, with none being more important than continuing to build upon our tradition of excellence in education. Embrace opportunities, unlock potential and inspire excellence!

The Biltmore School strives to provide challenging, internationally-minded education that gives students the necessary tools to become lifelong learners.
Many theories and philosophies in education have contributed to the way we work and the culture of thinking and learning that exists in our school.
Inspiration from the Reggio Emilia philosophy, the curriculum framework set forth by the International Baccalaureate Organization, and Harvard University's Visible Thinking research are just a few of the practices that we implement into our daily routines and ideas we share with our parents, students, and teachers. Our philosophy revolves around respecting our students' ability to think, analyze, understand and communicate.
We value the learning process and the evolution of thought in all stages of human development; from the first learning experiences of our youngest students to the ongoing professional development of our teachers. Each day we have the opportunity to learn something new, explore different ideas and reflect on different perspectives.
As a school that values the learning process and considers education in the 21st century a priority, we aim to help our learners become more internationally-minded as we help them prepare for the unknown.
The International Baccalaureate® aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.
These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
