24 Parent Reviews for British School Of Boston

This school has really great people and teachers, but so does every other school in Boston. What makes this school different is how relaxed and small it is. For a high school, there's a lot of free time, assemblies, culture weeks, a lot of random "fun" things.The high school is very small (~20 people ...  Read more

BISB is a great school with a great faculty and a really good curriculum. The school is in a decent campus in Jamaica Plain, but it would benefit if more facilities are added such as larger music rooms or a bigger library. The rigour of the academic programmes at BISB is one of the leading in Boston, ...  Read more

I am a parent with two children here at the BSB. We have been at this school for along time. I must say yes we lack sports and other extra's however we make it up with what these chidren are taught. The teachers here are the best the proof is when ill children fight to go to school. The two most important ...  Read more

I am a parent with a child who just finished Reception (equivalent of preschool). While I was a skeptic in the beginning, after completing our first year here, I have been massively impressed with the individualized learning that my child has received. Teachers have tailored their material to him, ...  Read more

The school is academically very strong, able to prepare students for the best schools in the city as well as for the IB program, possibly the most rigorous international high school degree. Teachers here are excellent ...  Read more

I didn't realise how much my child did not learn at the British School until she left. The lower school is great, but the secondary program is lacking. Many students leave to attend more established, better programs, for the "high school" years. The community is very small at the upper end, leaving ...  Read more

We joined the school at the beginning of the academic year following a visit in the Spring. Our daughters are in the middle and high school. We are very happy with the school in general. I have little exposure to the lower school so I can only comment meaningfully on the older years. We have found ...  Read more

The IB diploma programme is widely accepted, by the most prestigious universities, as the single best programme designed to prepare students for life at university and beyond. It's so well rounded, and challenging, and goes beyond the traditional (and often shallow) American education. I couldn't be ...  Read more

I have a son that has been at the school for 5 years now and I recently started my daughter in the Nursery class. I am completely satisfied with the school. There is a high level of learning taking place as well as a great love of learning. The teachers are outstanding. Every year I think that the ...  Read more
