    Admissions Team at the British International School of Houston

Principal's Welcome

Learn about why the British International School of Houston is one of the best private schools in Houston from Principal Mark Wilson.

Mark Wilson, Principal at British International School of Houston

I am delighted to welcome you to the British International School Houston. 

We are a school community based on our core values of Pride, Unity and Respect, a school that believes passionately about providing a safe, inspiring and enriching environment that enables everyone to flourish. We pride ourselves on placing learning at the heart of all we do and on helping all members of our community embrace learning and make the most of every day. 

We do this by teaching our students to take responsibility for their own learning and by guiding them towards new knowledge and skills through international curricula that is benchmarked against the high quality British Educational standards. This leads to graduation via the International Baccalaureate programmes which enable our students to attend the best Universities in the world. This is all made possible by the amazing world class teachers who bring their dedication and passion to every experience both inside and outside of the classroom. 

Our students’ IB and iGCSE results are consistently among the very best in the world. Our IB score for the last three years is between 34 and 35 with over 20% of each graduating class scoring 40 points or above. Typically, half of our graduating class are offered places at the world’s top 100 Universities and those attending colleges in North America were awarded an average of $120,000 per student in academic scholarships, along with 30 advanced credits.  This makes us one of the most successful IB School in Texas and amongst the best International Schools in the World. 

These outstanding academic outcomes are only part of what makes our school so special. We have a vibrant Performing Arts Programme which is designed and delivered in collaboration with the Julliard School in New York, a world class STEAM programme developed alongside our collaboration with M.I.T and dynamic internationally minded curricular and co-curricular opportunities based on our collaboration with UNICEF. We also have a competitive athletics programme which provides students with opportunities to develop a passion for sport as well as compete in local, regional and state tournaments. We are proud of all our sporting success and especially proud of the three State Soccer Championships we have won in recent years. Go Bulldogs! 

We help develop globally aware young people who know how to learn and how to lead, so they can make a difference in the lives of our local community and on wider scales. The commitment to provide service for others through our Service Learning programmes is an integral element of what makes a BISH Student.

While this website serves as a window into one of the world’s leading schools, we invite you to visit our state of the art campus so you can personally experience our truly innovative and individualized approach to education that results in remarkable progress for all students. We are very proud of our school and we will always take the time to show you around.  

I look forward to welcoming you in person when you visit. 

 

Mark Wilson
