    "The comments about the nursery class are wildly misleading. I have checked and now know that in the class there are three members of qualified and experienced staff and the class size never exceeds 29 at any one time. The ratios are much better than in a standard day care center. As it is a British school the children start to learn the basics of reading and writing from the age of three and seem to love it. The range of activities on offer to them is wonderful and the teachers seem to know the children very well and show great care and attention to them. I am very impressed."

    "Very disappointing. Teachers are here to socialise first and teach second. No support from the top for them available for their youth and inexperience. Of course, some are good ones but not most. Anti-parent barrier as if we are a nuisance. Average to poor facilities (not including the structure which is temporary until new school is built on another site). Primary sports programmes non existent. Unqualified staff. No real policies in place. Nobody cares. Very expensive mediocre school."

    "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."
