    "We are self paying parents of a student in nursery of this school with 31 students in class and only one teacher available to teach all of them."

    "This school is amazingly bad. It actually beggars belief how bad it it. The staff are young and inexperienced. There has been a mass exodus of the really good ones over the last 3 years. It is a bit of a running joke among the expat community who do not send there or have removed them. Among Americans it is known as the private school you send your kids to when you can't get them in to a better one. The quality of education is very poor compared to other private schools. I'm not sure what the pp is talking about when they said the curriculum is two years ahead. I am a teacher and have worked in England. It is not two years ahead by any stretch of the imagination. The pastoral (not religious but rather mind and spirit) care of the children is also poor. No attempts to help them settle in in any meaningful way. Avoid if at all possible."

    "This might be a great school for elementary or middle school equivalent but for the Pre-K program it needs a lot of improvement. Student to teacher ratio is quite high (too many kids per teacher) considering the also high tuition fee. Some teachers are young and very inexperienced indeed and I found them enthusiastic only on Fridays. Nonetheless, they have some good ones, I just wish there were more experienced teachers or LSA's. We have never been asked for donations. They teach French as a second language which is something positive as all other schools teach Spanish and honestly learning Spanish in Houston is quite easy either with a Nanny or friends. Their sport facilities are average. There is a good parents community, very diverse and friendly. Our child has learned a lot there but is not passionate about the school. Maybe later there is the wow factor so much advertised. Principal leadership is weak, we look forward to BSOH having a new principal as well as the new campus in Katy."

    "British School of Houston is a for profit organization. Building is outdated. Leadership aims to increase revenue by enrolling increasing amount of students through aggressive and inaccurate marketing. Minimum salaried teachers from the UK without experience and motivation are contracted on a two year visa. Quality of education ranked low in comparison to any other school in the UK. Insufficient number of classroom assistants. School relays heavily on volunteer work of parents. Students and parents are encouraged to fundraise and donate frequently. School might be a necessity to Expats because of British curriculum. No benefit to any child to attend this school since Houston offers variety of safe, friendly and high quality schools without the ever increasing price tag."

    "Reviews ought to be based on facts!!!!! All parents including myself, are fully aware that the school is continually being improved, most recently the bus canopies and new, fresh reception after half term......This is without mentioning the fantastic new build school opening 2015/2016. Teachers are rewarded most handsomely and are carefully recruited based on credentials and experience. Young, enthusiastic teachers are a bonus to the school. I am unaware of volunteers working at the school as even the invidulators are in paid positions! The academic results speak for themselves and as we are all aware, not everyone can be satisfied all of the time!!!! I can honestly say I have NEVER been asked for a donation of any kind. For my family, BSH has been absolutely the right choice and my children enjoy the homely, friendly surroundings."
