Class rosters and teacher assignments will be sent about a week before school starts.

Do we need to purchase school supplies?

No, all school supplies are included in your tuition costs, including your student’s computer. The only items your student needs to bring to school (or purchase in some instances) is a backpack, reusable water bottle, uniform(s), and lunchbox.

Where and what do I purchase for uniforms?

The new Uniform Guide and Store for the 24-25 school year is now live! You can find the information below.

Is there early morning drop off?

Yes, we will offer Early Birds again this year. The time is TBA, however this will be a service available for our families.

Where can I find the Family Handbook, Code of Conduct, and Contact Guide?

We are currently updating the policies and procedural documents to reflect our new campus at Bee Cave. These documents will be published to families soon!

Will there be a shuttle and/or other transportation options?

Yes, however the offering is still undergoing final planning and development, so we have no new update to give at this time. There will be more information shared soon!

Changes to Grade Level Terminology

Starting in the 2024-25 School Year, we will classify grade levels as the following:

  • Early Childhood (Junior PreK, PreK, Kindergarten)
  • Lower School (Grades 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5)
  • Middle School (Grades 6, 7, 8)
  • Upper School (Grade 9)

We are still an IB institution and will accurately classify grades as PYP, MYP, and eventually DP, however this change more accurately reflects our school organization and structure.

Quarters and Semesters

Starting in the 2024-25 School Year, we will transition away from a trimester schedule into a Semester/Quarter schedule. This change will affect the frequency of student progress and term reports, with term reports coming at the end of Semester 1 and the end of Semester 2. Progress reports will come at the end of Quarters 1 and 3.

Semester 1: Quarters 1 & 2

Semester 2: Quarters 3 & 4
