Welcome from the Head of School

Darren Nicholas, Head of School at the British International School of Boston, welcomes you to campus and talks of his commitment to building BISB's reputation as one of the best private schools in Boston.

  • Darren Nicholas

Welcome to the British International School of Boston!

I hope to welcome you on campus so that you can learn more about our program and what BISB can offer your family. Once you enter the school, you will immediately feel the friendly, warm and caring atmosphere. 

The school has a fantastic staff body whose aim is to ensure that every student achieves more than they thought possible, and is equipped for life in the 21st century. This is what makes our school unique. Not only does the school collaborate with some of the most well respected educational institutions in the world, it also offers all students the opportunity to communicate and learn with a student body that currently covers 25 countries and over 50,000 students worldwide.

We are extremely ambitious for every student and do not set a ceiling on their potential. This approach supports every student to succeed academically, socially and personally. Our teachers respond to  every student's strengths, as well as areas of development to ensure that they can overcome every challenge. We nurture essential skills to equip children to succeed in all aspects of their formative years. The outstanding academic results throughout every stage of school are a testament to this approach, meaning students leave the school not only with high standards of academic achievement but, also, a clear understanding of where they want to proceed in their next educational challenge.

For us, academic success is just the beginning. Our school nurtures student talents so that they can succeed in every aspect of their education, from maths to sports, arts, languages and technology. We encourage every student to love learning, to try something new and, above all, to be ambitious.

I am immensely proud to be Head of School at the British International School. It is a privilege to serve the community of Boston and the surrounding areas with their long tradition of educational excellence. Together we will continue to ensure that each and every student has the best possible start to their lives.

I look forward to meeting you soon!
