My Students

Our students work towards mastering not only their high school diploma, but college course credit as well! Our students have traveled around the globe including Egypt, China, Cambodia, Thailand, Slovenia, Belize, Italy, and Spain. On average, our seniors graduate with 30 hours of college credit.

Our campus is a phenomenal international studies community.

All of our students are engaged in working with community partners, studying abroad to expand their global perspective and challenging themselves with college-level course work. The teachers in our learning community are extremely passionate about preparing our students to become productive citizens of our global community by encouraging them to become life-long learners and take action about global issues that concern them. The school community supports our students and campus unconditionally, and we want to continue encouraging our students to grow.

My Project

Our students are creating their first art car for our school community. Houston is famous for our art car parade held each Spring. In order to engage our community stakeholders and promote our amazing campus, our students have decided to join the Houston Art Car Community. This project will engage students in creating a community-based art piece, actively seek out community members and encourage them to participate or donate materials, apply math and engineering skills during our build-out and design phase, and use budgeting skills to ensure we have the tools and materials needed to complete our art car! These materials will make in difference in our students' learning by allowing them to express their artistic creativity while inspiring our community members with their amazing talent and perseverance. The generator will provide power for our lights, speakers, smoke machine, and more! This will provide the energy the dance team, Chinese dragon dancers, and ribbon dancers and other participants need to energize our performance during the parade. This is the opportunity of all of our community members to become involved!
