Admissions Process

We are delighted you are considering the British International School of Houston for your child. Our school seeks to enroll motivated students who are enthusiastic learners, ready to thrive in an academically rich curriculum.

The British International School of Houston welcomes children from both local and international communities. While most students join us at the beginning of the academic year, we are able to admit children throughout the year, space permitting.

Places are offered based on availability and an assessment of whether there is an appropriate fit between your child and our school.  Sibling places and Nord Anglia transfers are given priority though not guaranteed. 

Many parents find it helpful to visit our school before making an application, but we appreciate this is not always possible for our international families.

Please contact our Admissions Team, and they will guide you through the process. 

How to Apply

To complete the admissions process, please complete the following:

1. Submit an online application.

2.  Schedule a tour and visit our campus in person or virtually. 

4.  Submit school transcripts (current and prior year).

5.  Submit teacher evaluation form(s).
6.  Drawing or writing task.
  • Ages 3-4: Please tell us about your family either in a drawing or in writing
  • Ages 5-6: Please tell us about your family in a drawing with some writing and write your name
  • Ages 7-10: Please write about yourself, your family and your interests
  • Ages 11 and above: Please write an essay in which you tell us something about yourself. You may choose to write about a special interest or talent you have or an interesting experience you have had.

We may ask for additional information not listed above to make a full assessment of your child's application. 

Application Deadlines/Rolling Admissions

We accept applications and offer places throughout the school year based on availability and timing.

With rolling admissions, students who apply and are accepted throughout the school year are offered places based on availability in the year group.
