The British school is private and, therefore, expensive. However, they never ask for donations and, when you add up the "extras" at private schools that claim they are cheaper, British is very competitive and often less money. As for academics and culture, it's the best. I have been a member for three years and interviewed at all the main private schools in Chicago (except Lab). The warmth of the teachers, the nurturing environment and the caring way in which they teach the kids is unbelievable. The kids Want to come and get sad if school is closed! The teaching staff is just terrific in every way. And the curriculum is outstanding, sometimes overwhelming. This school is worth every penny!

Both of my children attend this school and I could not be happier. The academic standards and expectations are high but the environment is warm and supportive. All of the teachers my children have had have been excellent and engaged. The school culture is open, inclusive and diverse. We look forward to the years ahead.

We have been at this school since its founding and could not be happier. Our son has had excellent and caring teachers and has thrived under their guidance. Every year they truly get to know him as an individual and push him to meet high academic standards. They consistently differentiate learning in the classroom and challenge students with the rigorous curriculum but still find lots of ways to make learning fun and exciting. There is a ton of creativity in their approach and a very strong visual and performing art element in the curriculum which is important to us. The IPC curriculum is also a huge plus and it truly imparts a global perspective to the students. I can’t say enough good things about the school and its wonderful parent community.

I have two children who attend British - south loop. They have both been there since its inception, three years ago. I could not be happier with the staff, education, and diversity of the school. Both of my children are in elementary school. The quality of education they receive is unparalleled to any of the other schools that I’ve seen. I cannot say more about how much I love the school from a parent perspective as well as how much my two children love to go to school every day!
