Thank you for your interest in the International School of Texas!
Our learning community welcomes children from both local and international communities who reflect the racial, cultural, and religious diversity of the wider world. While most students join us at the beginning of the academic year, we also offer rolling admissions throughout the year, space permitting.
Our Early Childhood program engages students aged 2-4 in the foundations of an international education. Our EC program features a student/teacher ratio of 6 to 1, enabling our educators to provide unparalleled interaction with and nurturing for our youngest students.
Our Primary Years Programme engages students in grades Pre-K through Grade 4. PYP students are educated in our rigorous curriculum, modeled after the British National Curriculum and tailored to reflect state and national standards. As an International Baccalaureate school, IST nurtures and develops its students as caring, active participants in a lifelong journey of learning.
Our Middle Years Programme develops students in grades 5-8 (Grade 8 to begin in the 2021-22 school year) as they grow in the IB curriculum’s inquiry-led, transdisciplinary framework, which challenges students to think for themselves and take responsibility for their learning as they explore local and global issues and opportunities in real-life contexts. Our PYP/MYP student/teacher ratio is 8 to 1.
