Grace is committed to the security of staff and students in Bangladesh’s changing security climate. Ultimately, Grace trusts in God’s protection. This means constantly asking for His wisdom as official advice is received. Grace implements, practises, and reviews measures to ensure the safety of the school community. This includes home, school, and travel to & fro. Security staff are present at the teachers’ accommodation 24/7 as well as on each campus. Security systems are continually assessed. Should you have any concerns regarding security don’t hesitate to ask for an on-the-ground. Painting an on-the-ground picture of what it looks like to live in Dhaka, Bangladesh is an important aspect.

“I have always found our campus to be comforting and safe. Despite restrictions that come with life in Bangladesh, staff and students really thrive in the encouraging community. Grace leadership are well connected to embassies and listen carefully to advice from the authorities. Once outside the school, life is still relatively unrestricted and safe in terms of getting around town—although it does take effort, vigilance, and grace to navigate the streets of Dhaka.” - Secondary Teacher

"God chose me for Grace school. I have had a relationship with Grace International School since November 2012, and I have been witness to many occasions where I have seen God defend and sustain what I know to be a very special place in His heart. Grace is a diamond in the rough centre of Asia. Dhaka at times, can be a challenging place to live and work, but seeing how God moves through this unique school community is what keeps me here and still passionate for the work He has called me to be part of. Grace is a facilitator of good things, and it enables for the community it serves to participate in careers, projects, and missions that positively contribute to a country where needs are high." - Teacher
