A new school for expats in Houston area

Expatriates moving to Houston rejoice, the options for schools has just gotten greater. In the south-west suburbs of Houston (Sugar Land, Texas), a new school pursuing the International Baccalaureate program has opened its doors to children of all nationalities, willing to follow an international education. Sue McMahon founder, presents the ambitious project to Paguro.

It is our sincere pleasure to introduce the International Preparatory School and Cultural Center of Sugar Land, Texas to the community.  IPS is a unique learning environment made up of an exceptionally culturally diverse student-teacher community. Our school, greatly enriched by this diversity, is dedicated to the premise that students and teachers, together, will achieve ever more challenging goals and that each individual’s success and promise for the future will be viewed as everyone’s success.

Indeed, the school’s motto is “Legacy in Learning"

IPS will pursue a universally respected candidacy with the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), a recognized leader in the field of international education.  Students are taught in an environment that is founded upon the principles of integrity, honesty and service to others, and IPS is a school that embraces both the enthusiastic student’s eagerness to learn and his or her excitement to face each day’s challenges. The wonderfully low student/teacher ratio provides a purposeful environment that thoughtfully cultivates your child’s natural curiosity and love for learning, and helps to develop positive social interactions and excellent communication skills.

The IPS curriculum is academically exceptional and will use state of the art curriculum materials.

The temporary home of IPS is just 8 minutes from Hwy 6 and Hwy 59 in Sugar Land, at the following address:

11715 Bellfort Village Drive
Houston, Texas 

In January 2007 IPS will be permanently located at:

16301 Kensington Drive
Sugar Land, Texas
