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 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.
Congratulations to Awty student Ana Sofia Munoz! Her book "Lala and Max" won first place in her age division (Kindergarten) in the 2018 Houston Public Media PBS KIDS Writers Contest!

The May issue of ACCENT, Awty's quarterly e-magazine, has been published. We hope you will enjoy enjoy hearing about all of the great things happening at Awty.
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.
