    While it may at first seem overwhelming, the wide selection of great private schools in the Boston area offers you the opportunity to find the right fit for your family and your child. This important decision should be made only after considering what’s genuinely right for your child's future.

    Visiting a variety of different types and sizes of schools will help you get a sense of where your child will be most successful. Explore, talk, and meet current parents and students. Most importantly, ask lots of questions.

    See our guide to the “10 Questions to Ask Your Private School Admissions Team” and explore our answers to these important questions. This will help you decide if BISB is the right school for your child.

  • What curriculum does British International School of Boston teach from?

    A school's curriculum is one of the most influential factors on a child's learning and development. As you explore BISB and other schools for your child’s future, you’ll find out how the curriculum supports and challenges students of varying abilities and educational backgrounds. Ask why the school chose the curriculum they did and find out how your child’s learning style will be supported within the curriculum.

    Learn how we have chosen to teach from globally respected curricula at BISB, including the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, which have been proven to help children excel and are highly regarded by colleges and universities across the US and around the globe.

  • How will my child's progress be measured?

    It’s important to know how a school tracks student progress and achievement and to know how the school communicates this progress with parents.

    At British International School of Boston, teachers have regular conversations with students to measure their learning and help them set new learning goals. Teachers track student progress carefully and clearly communicate with parents through school reports, Parent-Teacher Conferences, and student learning journals. Teachers also help track students' social and emotional progress, encouraging students to reach personal goals in addition to academic goals.

    Discover how goal setting leads to great success for our students.

  • Do you have an admissions deadline?
    When applying to private schools in Boston, it’s important to know when applications are due and to provide all supporting documents required for admissions. Our application deadline is January 15th every year. Decisions are sent out by March 10th, and enrollment contracts are due to the school by April 10th.
  • How does British International School of Boston welcome new families?

    Your new school is going to be your family's new community. As such, we know it’s important to help you and your child feel welcome.

    We host a New Student Day the week before school begins to let students meet their teachers and explore the school building. During the fall term, we also host a series of monthly events throughout Boston for new parents. In the past, we've toured the Boston Public Library, visited the Museum of Fine Arts, and explored Boston Symphony Hall.
