International Baccalaureate (IB) Performance Highlights

The British International School of Houston's 2022 results showcase a number of impressive statistics for this cohort, both individually and collectively:


We have long been proud of our students for consistently scoring considerably higher than the IB global average year over year. Recognised in more than 100 counties worldwide, the IB Programme is one of the most highly-regarded international curricula, well known for its breadth and academic rigor, which nurture a global outlook and prepare students for success at university and in their future working lives.

This year's results continue to see our graduates attend their first-choice universities. Our students consistently receive multiple offers from prestigious academic institutions and top universities in the US and around the world. This year is no exception and includes Oxford University, King's College London, Boston University, New York University, Texas A&M, and Rice University, to name a few. Our Class of 2022 also received over $2 million in scholarships!

IGCSE Results

The GCSE and IGCSE are internationally respected qualifications studied by students between 14 and 16 years old. Respected by employers and universities, they cover a broad range of core subjects including maths, English, and science, as well as world languages, humanities, social sciences, art, drama, and music. They are the most academically challenging qualifications currently on offer for 14- to 16-year-old students worldwide, and many candidates go on to study the International Baccalaureate (IB).

Our students' results for 2020 exceed the UK average for GCSEs (General Certificate of Secondary Education) and IGCSEs (the International GCSE). In 2020, 98% of students achieved 5A*–C grades. 

Our students' continued success in GCSE and IGCSE results is a testament to BIS Houston’s high academic standards, excellent teaching, and the hard work and dedication of our students. Students continue to significantly outperform UK national averages, with attainment levels increasing year-on-year.
