Meet Our Headmaster

British International School of Chicago, South Loop is proud to offer families from around the world a personalized, international education in one of Chicago's most diverse communities.

  • Mike with students KS2

I have been Headmaster of British International School of Chicago since we first opened in 2001, and I am delighted you are considering us for your child's education. We welcome families of all nationalities who wish their children to be educated in an internationally minded and learning-focused environment. We stay true to our core values, have high standards for children and offer them a wealth of academic and extracurricular activities.

Our curriculum is broadly based and tailored to meet children's individual needs. Your child will experience stimulating and purposeful learning from which they will be able to grow in self-confidence and fulfill their potential. Our high-caliber and well-qualified staff are dedicated and enthusiastic in their goal of providing children the best possible start to life in a happy, secure learning environment.

At BISC South Loop, we highly regard our students' achievements and pride ourselves on providing a supportive and structured atmosphere. We are very well resourced and enjoy excellent teacher-to-student ratios. Because successful education relies on a partnership between the school, children and parents, we value and encourage your involvement in order to develop strong home-school links. We also strongly encourage enrichment outside of the classroom to develop the whole learner, and as a result offer a wide variety of art, music and sporting activities.

Our website only offers a glimpse of our school. We would be delighted if you came to visit our South Loop campus to see us at work and play.

Michael Horton, Headmaster
