Parent's Review of British School of Washington in
What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)
British School of Washington
In what town or city is this school located?
How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)
What grade levels are represented at this school?
Nursery to IB Diploma
How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)
Car and bus
How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
Not bad but not great. Very average and does not even come close with what's on offer at other private schools I DC.
What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home
country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?
Nothing really. The school could do a lot more.
How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?
I rarely visit the school as I don't feel welcome there. There is a feeling the teachers don't want you around.
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
I think the school pushes reading and writing in the Elementary School but feel it loses its way academically in the Middle and High School. It is a for profit school which is a problem as you never feel there's much money about. It is owned by a company in London.
Not very personal with poor communication.
