San Antonio's Most Comprehensive
Private International, Immersion Education
A connected world brings global opportunities within easy reach. It also demands an understanding of other languages and cultures. We prepare children to become tomorrow’s leaders and change agents through a full-immersion, comprehensive learning experience from preschool through elementary school.
A comprehensive learning experience
Beginning with our premier early childhood curriculum, we focus on communication skills through rich cognitive and linguistic stimulation. In PreK and Kinder, we engage in reading, writing and math through hands-on activities, in a variety of settings, to nurture each child’s individual personality. As students enter Elementary School and begin to read and write independently, they discover more complex concepts and develop a love of learning.
Bi-literacy and a third language
English language arts, including phonics, are introduced in preschool to support bi-literacy. A third language of choice is offered once a week in Preschool and daily in Elementary School.
Exceeds state standards
Our holistic program is aligned with Texas state education standards and exceeds requirements in language arts and mathematics. Our international curricula aligns with the French National Curriculum and is enhanced with global best practices, such as Singapore Math.
In our classrooms, children work on motor skills, literacy and critical thinking. Music, art, science, and field trips are incorporated into learning throughout the term. Children also learn through events that we develop in partnership with San Antonio parks and museums, including The DoSeum, the McNay Art Museum, and San Antonio Botanical Gardens.
Our average student to teacher ratio is six to one, providing personalized attention to each child’s learning and language skills for an elementary school.
The school’s large playground is an extension of the classroom. It gives children plenty of space to run, play, and explore. Shaded by large oak trees and featuring a garden, it’s a nice respite from the Texas heat.
Our on-site kitchen is the source of healthy meals and organic snacks. Culinary classes are also taught. We are licensed and inspected by the City of San Antonio Metropolitan Health District.
We are licensed and audited by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS), which sets and enforces stringent health and safety rules.
