Overview

Welcome. Ahlan wa sahlan. Bienvenidos. Hoan nghênh.

International High School welcomes the world’s students to Austin. New Texans from Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas begin their studies in a global community where every student is bilingual or multilingual.

International High School, which shares a campus with Eastside Memorial High School, prepares students to transition to public education in the United States and sets them on a course for success. The school offers flexible schedules, tutoring and programs to help students adapt to their new lives in America, while building the skills they need to succeed in college, career and life.

Educators that are well-experienced in teaching students who speak English as a second language work with students to develop individual academic plans with an emphasis on higher education. The school also offers extracurricular activities, which help builds bonds among the global community of students.

After students complete their studies, International High School celebrates the accomplishment at a bridging ceremony, high-energy festivities that mark the transition to their home high schools. Teachers honor the students for leadership and scholastic performance, and the White House recognizes Presidential Scholars for outstanding academic excellence. 

The international alumni remain closely connected through a shared worldview: We came together as strangers, but we leave as lifelong friends.
