International Schools in Houston

As the fourth largest city in the United States, a foreign-born population of more than 20%, and consular offices representing 92 countries, Houston is a fantastically cosmopolitan place. While expatriates moving to Houston have access to all public and private schools, many will gravitate to so-called “international schools.”

Private international schools in Houston usually distinguish themselves by offering programs that conform to foreign curricula such as the International Baccalaureate, French Baccalaureate, and British A-Levels. Typically the student body of these schools is comprised of more than 50% expatriates.


Public schools offering the International Baccalaureate curriculum might be worth exploring for expatriates looking for a good balance between the “typical American experience” and access to an internationally accepted diploma.
