After School Programs

Afterschool programs at the Galileo campus serve children of all ages and encompass a broad range of focus areas including arts, sports, and mentoring. The activities in which children and youth engage while outside of school hours are critical to their development, highlighting the need for quality afterschool programs in all communities.

Bloomingdale’s Afterschool program is initiated in association with the Ombrello academy that aims to provide after-school activities to further enrich and supplement the education experience at BIS for our students. We have put every effort into building a solid program, which is both fun and rewarding. Activities include sports, crafts, language, technology, and performing arts among others, and vary by term.

Activities have included: Cooking Class, Football, Basketball, Tennis,  Swimming, Arts, etc.

Theater(Coming in 2022)

BIS Theater performances take place in our Drama Studio and on the big Theater stage(2022). Students as young as EY2 have the opportunity to audition for a stage production. Theater productions are age-appropriate, providing our
younger actors a taster of what it feels to perform in front of an audience and our older ones a chance to hone their acting, singing, dancing and stage production skills.

Music

The Music Program allows our students the opportunity to practice playing their music in groups. Recorder, percussion, strings, woodwind, choir and symphony orchestra are just a few of the ensembles in which our students can get involved. Musical concerts take place at the end of each semester, allowing our students the opportunity to gain valuable performance experience and to show off their hard work
