School Day

Our learning schedule is structured to ensure that all of our students are enthusiastic and engaged with their learning from the first bell. Although our hours are consistent, no two days at the British International School of Washington are the same.

Our school day begins at 8:20 AM and ends around 3:30 PM with the current status the school has staggered start and end time for safety measures. Students are allowed to arrive starting at 8:00 AM, and all students must go through a health screening (temperature check) before entering the school building. Students in middle school and high school should arrive in time to be seated for registration at 8:20 AM. Each year group will have a break and lunchtimes depending on grade level. 

Below are detailed school schedules and current curriculum guides for each year's groups.
