For the 2018/19 academic school year, BISH achieved an average score of 34.3 this year. The average score was 15% higher than the IB global average of 29.78 points, widening the gap between the school and other IB schools around the world. We also had a 100% pass rate with our IBCP programme. These results showcase the difference that Nord Anglia Education schools bring to students’ academic results.
“We’re very proud of our fantastic students who have again achieved outstanding IB results. Our Class of 2019 will now continue their educational journey at some of the world’s leading universities. Please join me in congratulating our students for their tremendous achievements. A bright and rewarding future awaits these fabulous young people.” Mark Wilson, Principal of The British International School of Houston.
