Last week for their last days of school, Ms. Vargas’ 4th grade class received some very special mail… a letter from the President and First Lady of the United States themselves!
Welcome to The Awty International School
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.

Woohoo! We did it! We completed another great school year, and made some wonderful memories along the way! We’d like to wish everyone in the Awty community a safe and restful, yet fun summer break.
What better way to celebrate our last school day than with car parades honoring our Primary School graduates? Congrats again and see you next year!
That’s a wrap for our 5th grade/CM2 students! Their Lower School experience is coming to an end; off they go to a new chapter in Middle School next year.
It’s graduation time for our Kindergarten/Grande Section students! We celebrated and wished them Bon Voyage as they crossed the bridge towards their new 1st grade/CP journey next year.
We are excited to announce that our Full STEAM Ahead Capital Campaign has exceeded its goal!
Congratulations Class of 2023! You've made it!
Happy Graduation Day to the Class of 2023! We look forward to seeing you walk across that stage today! You make us #AwtyProud!
The graduation ceremony will be livestreamed today. Check Awty Notes for the link.
This is a kind reminder that Awty will be closed on Monday, May 29 in observance of Memorial Day.

Mac, 7th Grade
"I really like how each of the teachers really want you to be successful. They help you find a way to learn that makes sense to you. I know they care."
"I love Awty because the teachers are so nice and encouraging. Another reason I love Awty is because they have clean and organized classrooms. I also love the events that Awty does. I think Awty has a cool playground. Finally, I love Awty because I have learned three languages: French, English, and Spanish."
"As an international person who has moved around a lot, I love the sense of community and openness to every culture that Awty has. Awty can be a home for everyone."
Zade, 7th Grade
"I love Awty's advanced curriculum and I enjoy meeting fellow students from different cultures and nationalities."
Sarah, 9th Grade
"I feel like I'm accepted for who I am and there's not any pressure to change. Everybody is accepted for who they are, not because of their interests, wealth, ethnicity, or looks. Differences are welcomed!"
