Our son went to this school and in our experience this school is way overpriced with marginal returns. One would expect that the staff and teachers would care more about their student's progress and accomplishments. There is no way to check which assignments are due and when. Students write down assignments ...  Read more

Looked round this school as it had good results. Kids put off by brusque Admissions woman who seemed to think that English being their second language was a problem.

The comments about the nursery class are wildly misleading. I have checked and now know that in the class there are three members of qualified and experienced staff and the class size never exceeds 29 at any one time. The ratios are much better than in a standard day care center. As it is a British ...  Read more

Very disappointing. Teachers are here to socialise first and teach second. No support from the top for them available for their youth and inexperience. Of course, some are good ones but not most.

This school is amazingly bad. It actually beggars belief how bad it it. The staff are young and inexperienced. There has been a mass exodus of the really good ones over the last 3 years. It is a bit of a running joke among the expat community who do not send there or have removed them. Among Americans ...  Read more

This might be a great school for elementary or middle school equivalent but for the Pre-K program it needs a lot of improvement. Student to teacher ratio is quite high (too many kids per teacher) considering the also high tuition fee. Some teachers are young and very inexperienced indeed and I found ...  Read more

British School of Houston is a for profit organization. Building is outdated. Leadership aims to increase revenue by enrolling increasing amount of students through aggressive and inaccurate marketing. Minimum salaried teachers from the UK without experience and motivation are contracted on a two year ...  Read more

Teachers are ...  Read more
