They showcase innovative uses of iPad and Mac in learning, teaching, and the school environment and have documented results of academic accomplishment.  And they cultivate environments in which students are excited and curious about learning.

“At the British International School of Houston, we focus on how technology can help personalize learning, give our students ownership of their own learning and transform learning into more powerful, real-life experiences,” said Andrew Derry, Principal.

“The selection of the British International School of Houston as an Apple Distinguished School highlights our success as an innovative and ​compelling learning environment that engages students and provides tangible evidence of academic accomplishment.”
