    Admissions

Mother Tongue in High School

Entry to higher education pathways in home countries often require certain language and subject grades. Where possible we work with students and families to help them meet these requirements. Our key strategy is to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme as one of our graduating pathways. This programme is globally recognized and enables all students to access routes into Higher Education in every country worldwide.  

IB Diploma First Language Options: 
In Years 12 and 13 our students can choose the Language A option in their first language, in addition to Language A in English (Group 1 English Literature or Language and Literature). If a student studies two Language A options, they can graduate with a Dual Language Diploma.  

Please note that some Language A Literature courses fall into the IB category of a School Supported Self-Study course (SSST programme), which is at Standard Level only. 

For the Academic Year 2021-2022 BIS Houston is offering Language A courses in English and Spanish. All other languages are self-study, and some incur additional costs. For more information please speak to the IB Coordinator.  

Other High School Options: (3 hours per week during High School Enrichment)  
We offer internationally recognized language courses in:  
Dutch: CNaVT 
German: DSD deutsches sprach Diplom (at an appropriate level for German speakers living abroad)
French: DELF (at an appropriate level for French speakers living abroad)
Spanish: Introducing AP Spanish in 2022/23

Note: There are additional costs for student manuals and exam fees. 

Courses will be offered based on demand.
