Houston’s Premier PK3 – 12th Grade International Day School


Dear Prospective Applicant,

We are pleased you are considering The Awty International School for your family. As you visit our website, we hope you will discover a bit of the warmth, friendliness, and excitement that is at the heart of our international learning community and makes us Houston’s premier international school.

One of the things that makes an Awty education distinctive is the nature of our community. Families at Awty represent over 55 nationalities and many of our students come to us already speaking more than one language. All of our students, regardless of the grade of entry, have the opportunity to learn and master multiple languages, whether through our immersion programs in French and Spanish at the Early Learning level, continuing intensive language study in Lower School, or through our numerous offerings—Dutch, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, Farsi, Italian, Polish, German, Norwegian, and Russian—in Middle School and Upper School.

Our challenging and global curriculum prepares students to graduate with either the International Baccalaureate Diploma or the French Baccalauréat. Multiple study abroad opportunities help to round out our students’ global preparedness – a key asset in the 21st century.

The admissions team is ready to answer your questions about our school and to help guide you through the application process. We look forward to meeting you in the weeks ahead.
