BRITISH INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF HOUSTON COLLABORATES WITH THE WORLD RENOWNED JUILLIARD SCHOOL

We will become one of the first schools in the world to benefit from an innovative new collaboration between Nord Anglia Education and The Juilliard School in New York.

  • Juilliard Collaboration
  • Group of students on keyboard
  • Man playing violin on stage
  • Female student playing violin
  • Male student playing saxophone

Our students will follow an embedded performing arts curriculum developed by specialists from Juilliard, along with continued support from, and engagement with, Juilliard alumni and affiliated artists.

The collaboration is designed to enhance our performing arts offering through its innovative structure, design and approach. The new embedded arts curriculum, which focuses first on music, was developed by curriculum and music experts at both Juilliard and Nord Anglia Education.

The music curriculum is designed for all students, not just those who are serious about learning an instrument or musical performance.  It is based around a repertoire of 12 core works covering a wide range of cultures, genres and historical periods, each of which has been carefully chosen by Juilliard to open the door to categories of music and fundamentals essential for all young people to know and experience. Ultimately, the curriculum aims to nurture cultural literacy and support your child in developing key skills, such as discipline, creativity and confidence that will enable them to succeed anywhere in the world once they’ve left school.  

Andrew Derry, Principal of the British International School of Houston, said, “This collaboration is incredibly exciting. An already vibrant and creative music department will be invigorated by our exclusive collaboration with Juilliard, and everyone involved is eager to begin the program and offer our students a world-class musical experience of the highest quality.”

Joseph W. Polisi, President at the Juilliard School, said, "In collaborating with Nord Anglia, we have a unique opportunity to share our expertise, offering those studying at Nord Anglia schools the chance to learn from the best that our two institutions can offer.

“We believe that the performing arts should have a significant role within today’s global educational environment.  By working with Nord Anglia, we can reach students from around the world to cultivate their skills and help guide them in their future growth."
