The British International School Houston is a successful, growing school with a highly committed and motivated team of teaching professionals at its heart. Our close knit and supportive team is proud of our school and community, educating around 1000 young people from 54 nationalities each year. Over the last 4 years our IB students achieved an average point score of 36 and our IGCSE students achieved 63% A*/A across all entries. Each year, a high proportion of our students are accepted into top universities around the world.
This is an exciting time to join our community. We have just moved in to a brand new, state of the art facility, that is one of the world’s most pedagogically advanced campuses. As a result, we are looking for an exceptional leader who is passionate about the holistic development of our students and their ‘extended learning’ beyond the taught curriculum. As a member of our Senior Leadership team, the Director of Student Life/Extended Learning will take strategic leadership of our teams who have responsibility for our Athletics Program, implementation of our strategic partnerships, Co-Curricular Activities, school trips, Service Learning, the Outdoor Program and MiLearning.
You will have a growth mindset, be able to deal with ambiguity and be motivated by participating fully in all aspects of school life.
