The British School of Boston opened in September 2000 in Dedham, Massachusetts. In September 2003 the school moved to a beautiful new site closer to the centre of Boston. The school is a private co-educational day school currently catering for children aged 3 to 13. It follows the English National Curriculum for Key Stages 1, 2 and 3, and there are plans to extend into a full senior programme. French is taught to children from Year 2. The British School of Boston is a sister school to the British School of Washington, which opened in 1998, The British School of Houston and the British School of Chicago.

Classes at British School of Boston run from mid-September to mid-July from 08:30 for KS2 and KS3 and 08:45 to 15:30 and follow the UK vacation pattern. Teachers and parents run extra-curricular activities. Care is available before school for children from 08:00.

Classroom teachers at the British School of Boston are UK trained and National Curriculum experienced graduates. Some specialist teachers, e.g. French and music, may be locally recruited, as are classroom assistants. Core textbooks, library books and work schemes are imported from the UK. The school tests at the end of Key Stages using the UK Statutory Assessment Tests and all children receive a baseline assessment upon entry. Children from Year 3 are tested regularly with other UK standardised tests so parents may make comparisons of their child's potential and achievement against national norms. School inspections are conducted using qualified inspectors from the UK. There is a mandatory school uniform.

The day-to-day operation of the British School of Boston is managed by the Headmaster, in consultation with the UK-based Executive Board and the Advisory Board (drawn from the local, international and parental communities).

The British School of Boston has an open admissions programme with year-round enrolment (subject to availability of places) and is non-selective but requires reports from previous schools and an interview. Children with limited English may only be admitted to the Early Years and there is minimal special needs provision.
