The following Press Release covers the first anniversary of the International School in N Lakeway.
AUSTIN, Texas, July 22, 2014 – The International School of Texas, a nonprofit, non-faith based private school located off 620 and Hudson Bend Road in Austin, is celebrating the success of its first school year with the addition of middle school students for the 2014-2015 school year and a new entrance being constructed on Hudson Bend Road scheduled to open this September.
“We’re proud to be celebrating the first successful year of the International School of Texas, an excellent choice for families looking to provide their children a true international education,” said Monique Threadgill, chair of the board of trustees for the International School of Texas. “We’re looking forward to the coming school year when we’ll welcome even more students to our family and continue to improve our beautiful campus and available resources.”
The International School of Texas, which opened in September 2013, completed its first year of classes, providing a high-quality learning environment to more than 70 students. In April, ten families with children at the school formed a Limited Liability Company (LLC) and purchased the campus land to ensure a continued legacy of international education for their families and the larger community. As part of the school’s continued growth plan, admissions will expand to include middle school students in the coming year. The school is currently accepting applications for the upcoming school year for children ages 3 to 13.
"We are so thankful for all of the wonderful people who helped make this first school year a successful one, and especially to the families who came together to make this dream a reality," said Gráinne O’Reilly, headmistress of the International School of Texas. "We aspire to provide our students with the best educational experience possible to support their individual growth and accomplishment. It is an honor to teach such bright and talented children, and we are looking forward to another fantastic school year with an even greater range of students to serve.”
The private school’s multicultural faculty—spanning the globe from China to the United Kingdom—consists of experienced professionals with proven capabilities in team building, mentoring, training and inspiring children. With limited class sizes, teachers are able to provide more individual attention to students and address their specific needs. Students are recognized for their individual abilities, intelligences and learning styles in order to help them become future leaders.
Headmistress Gráinne O’Reilly has more than three decades of experience in education, 20 of which have been at the headship level in the U.K., the U.S. and overseas. For the last 14 years, O’Reilly has specialized in international startups, managing 11 startups as headmistress or in an executive position.
The International School of Texas is located at 4105 Eck Lane in Austin, Texas on a beautiful 11 acre campus overlooking the shore of Lake Travis and serves the areas of Bee Cave, Lakeway, Steiner Ranch, Four Points, River Place, Westlake and the surrounding communities.
