British International School of Chicago Reviews

The education here is amazing! They really prepare you for college with implementing a lot of critical thinking in the course as well as a lot of essay writing. I also think that the teachers are the USP for the school. The teachers are very hands on and because they are very young it creates and a better student teacher relationship. The teachers genuinely care about our education and do everything possible to provide us with the best experience and education possible. Although, the social aspect of the school is quite poor but I think now that the school is growing the social aspect will be better, especially because the school is now trying to implement a more high school feel for the students. Overall I think British school is one of the best schools in Chicago!

The teachers were extremely supportive by always offering extra help and private, no-cost tutoring sessions for every student. The school never failed to organize amazing events such as dances, fairs, and fun/interactive activities for all students, I probably had one of the most amazing experiences of my life at British. The kids there are very sophisticated and the education was astounding. After graduating, I found myself multiple times using the tools my teachers taught me in middle school.
I personally liked this school however it's very small. One of the biggest things is that teachers don't respond to bullying well. It also doesn't prepare you for college, as the teachers basically hold your hand and students have no independence. It also doesn't seem like its students get into very notable colleges for some reason. The building also looks like a children's hospital but it's fine.
