Fore! It was a great day on the links for our Girls Golf Team! The team recently took 3rd place at the Steve Lasher Invitational hosted by The Kinkaid School at Blackhorse Golf Club.
Founded in 1956, Awty is Houston’s premier international school. We offer students a rigorous path to graduating with either the International Baccalaureate or the French Baccalauréat, and are the only school in Houston fully accredited by the French Ministry of Education. Beginning with three year olds, our program combines high academic standards with a kind and friendly atmosphere celebrating cultural, national, and linguistic diversity.

Do good deeds... get amazing opportunities! On their day off from school, five Awty students including 6th graders Clara Cox and Aanya Ram and Terminale students Philippe des Boscs, Jeanne Sauvee, and Maria Trinca Vespan spent their free time volunteering at the Houston Food Bank. Little did the students know they would get a chance of a lifetime to meet President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden.
No dress code changes here! All health and safety protocols still in effect for students and employees at Awty.

KIND REMINDER: Tomorrow, February 26 is a Faculty/Staff In-Service Day. There is no school for students. Enjoy your three-day weekend! Classes will resume on Monday, March 1, 2021.
We believe all students thrive best in a culture of vibrant diversity. We value every member of our community and celebrate many traditions, which helps us guide our students in becoming responsible world citizens. Our commitment to learning about and respecting one another's diversity brings distinct richness to students, alumni, employees, parents and our community.
All of our students, regardless of the grade of entry, study 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—Arabic, Dutch, English, Farsi, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Norwegian, Portuguese, and Russian—in Middle School and Upper School.
