    "Our son went to this school and in our experience this school is way overpriced with marginal returns. One would expect that the staff and teachers would care more about their student's progress and accomplishments. There is no way to check which assignments are due and when. Students write down assignments in their agenda books and if they didn't, you are out of luck. Can't check on the dates when the tests are given either. Several times we've asked for the school officials or teachers to set up on online parents account where teachers would post assignments, etc but it fell on deaf ears. Also, this school is not a member of TEA which means that a Texas public school may decide not to accept credit transfers from BSOH."

    "Looked round this school as it had good results. Kids put off by brusque Admissions woman who seemed to think that English being their second language was a problem. Yet then reminded us that school was changing it's name to British International School of Houston. the fact they were intimidated by her, hence their quietness did not occur to her. Given the people we met it seemed an odd unfriendly place. Headmaster and Deputy Head are married??!!! No school nurse for 800 kids. We ran ."

    "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."
