Welcome to the British International School of Houston.

It gives me great pleasure to introduce you to our school, which is part of Nord Anglia Education (NAE), a family of over 80 premium international schools in over 30 countries. Our vision and mission is to transform the lives of our learners by creating a community where everyone can flourish.

There's no limit to what can be achieved, and with our student-centred approach to learning for every child, our students are able to thrive now and in the future. BIS Houston is an environment where students achieve high levels of academic outcomes and balanced support that develops young people who are successful in the world beyond school.

Opportunities abound for our students to excel not just in the classroom but also in our spacious, state-of-the-art campus, and beyond – during trips, camps, and expeditions. We also have our collaborations with world-leading organisations like MIT, Juilliard, and UNICEF.

At BIS Houston, we have a diverse range of after-school activities, sports, performances, and enrichment activities. As members of NAE, our students have access to the exciting Global Campus network, connecting schools and students around the world through collaborative learning experiences and global challenges.

Our teachers are drawn to the very best world-wide and are committed to nurturing and inspiring every child they care for. We support them to do this through world-class professional development, supported by Nord Anglia University, and through collaboration and the sharing of international best practices. We're committed to constantly enhancing the technology used to support learning, and we develop our facilities to ensure we have the very best learning environments for all our students.

At BIS Houston, we're proud of our community feeling and the close relationships we have with our families. Together, we support our students to achieve their best by encouraging families to be active members in their child's journey at school. School spirit is important to the fabric of BIS Houston, with everyone being a BIS Houston Bulldog – and including families and staff.

As you browse our website, you'll get a flavour of what you can expect if you become part of the BIS Houston family. However, visiting will give you so much more. I encourage you to contact us to arrange an on-site tour, so that you can experience our caring community. We also can connect you with one of our families, so you can hear first-hand about our school.

It's an honor and privilege for me to lead this stand-out school, and I look forward to meeting you and seeing how your child will thrive as a BIS Houston Bulldog.
