You want the best for your child. So do we.
BEHIND EVERY SUCCESS IS A GREAT TEACHER
Your child’s teachers will have a lasting impact on their world. The right person can uncover new interests and give students the confidence to chase a bright future.
At The British International School of Houston, we are committed to searching the globe for the most experienced and dynamic educators. As a result, we have brought together a talented and diverse group of teachers that share the belief that an inspired student can achieve amazing things.
We believe that our role as educators is to motivate students to actively discover and persevere. For us, thinking is not a noun—it is a verb, an action, an activity. We seek to instill a love of learning that allows students to break down the barriers of what they think is possible for themselves.
We want to challenge students to try something new because we want them to embrace the belief that it’s good to fail however many times it takes until they succeed. We want to tell students to learn from their mistakes and find solutions, and that the greatest lesson they will learn is from the problem that they cannot solve.
A COMMITMENT TO ENSURING OUTSTANDING TEACHING
Ambition. Drive. Understanding. Inspiration. These qualities define every one of our teachers and ensure that your child will love coming to school every day. We believe that teachers need to be inspired too, so we provide a world-class support system and premium professional development that is amplified by the sharing of international best practice that keeps our educators up to date with the latest thinking in education from the best in the industry.
In addition, our aim is to provide an educational approach which tailors educational content and materials to suit the learning styles and aspirations of our students, wherever they are on their educational journeys.
We want to make sure that our students have the opportunity to be part of an engaging learning environment. One of the ways we help keep students challenged and engaged with their learning is by collaborating with pioneering institutions such as The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and The Juilliard School, to develop programmes that will give your child the skills, qualities and outlook to create their own exciting future.
EXCEPTIONAL ACADEMIC SUCCESS
Our progressive curricula and approach to education has ensured that we have a distinguished track record of college placement, and year after year our students achieve remarkable outcomes.

We want our students to love learning and achieve more than they ever thought possible, and it all starts with educators that are prepared to transform learning. That is why at the British International School of Houston we go beyond traditional education, so that we can provide transformational experiences that enable our students to become the world’s future leaders.
