“Our children settled well because of the attention paid to individual needs, strengths and areas of challenge. The teachers in small classes are able to teach each child with their individual learning style in mind. Being in a small close-knit school allowed the children and myself to interact more closely with the teachers/staff and the children to become more involved with school activities.”
“We preferred Brillantmont as it has a ‘family feel.’ Our daughter loves to be part of a multi-nationality school and she has blossomed since starting at BM. The nurturing environment has been a breath of fresh air and our daughter has been encouraged to be herself, but to have more self-confidence. “
