The official Web site for The Woodlands Preparatory School, a private, nonsectarian college with exceptional educational program in grades from kindergarten through twelfth grade, with IB Primary Years Programme.
Our story began in 2000, when The Woodlands Preparatory School was founded as a college-preparatory day school for families seeking small classes with high academic standards. Our current facility opened in 2002 on a wooded 18-acre campus just outside The Woodlands. The first senior class graduated in May 2008, and since then, our graduates have consistently earned admission to their top-choice colleges.
An International Community
Since its early days, students have been drawn to our school from around the world, partly due to our status as an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. Our location near The Woodlands, an affluent master-planned community with outstanding amenities and a high quality of life, is another draw for international families.
With a growing population of talented students from dozens of countries and a tradition of strong academics, we saw the opportunity to build a more international learning community. In the fall of 2013, under new ownership, we began to lay plans that would transform The Woodlands Preparatory School into a top-choice private school for families desiring an international education.
An International Curriculum
In 2014, with the International Baccalaureate’s Primary Years Programme already in place, we initiated the process for adding the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme and Diploma Programme to our existing AP offerings. The Woodlands Preparatory School is currently a candidate for both the MYP and DP. Our goal for authorization is Fall, 2015 for the DP and Spring, 2016 for the MYP.
Also in 2014, the school implemented a one-to-one technology program for kindergarten through 12th grade using Apple devices. The program is designed to support the inquiry-based approach of all IB programmes, giving students the tools they need to conduct research, create multi-media products, and communicate their learning.
An International Future
Since renewing its mission, The Woodlands Preparatory School has experienced a significant increase in enrollment. In anticipation of continued rapid growth, the leadership team has laid out facilities plans that include a fine arts building, an expanded library media center with a broadcast studio, a larger cafeteria, and athletic facilities. A number of these improvements are already underway.
With the commitment of an outstanding faculty, a wonderful community of supportive parents, and a group of talented, motivated students, we have embarked on a unique educational adventure, creating a school unlike any other. We are creating a school where students can learn the skills and attitudes they need to be global citizens. This is the place for students who want to be the makers of their own futures and the builders of a better world!
