Headwaters School, formerly The Khabele School, has announced fall open house dates for all three of its Austin campuses. Beginning with a Montessori foundation and progressing to the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme, the independent school serves students from 18 months through Grade 12.
“As stated in our school’s promise, we guide our students to live authentically, think expansively and create bravely,” said Ted Graf, Head of School. “Our teachers and administrators love the opportunity to talk about what our promise looks like in action, and we look forward to welcoming prospective families to our campuses in the coming weeks to share the Headwaters story.”
The Headwaters School open houses will give interested parents the opportunity to tour the school locations and connect with faculty members, the Head of School, Program Directors, the Admissions Director and currently enrolled students and parents. It will also be a chance for parents to experience firsthand the new and inspired direction Headwaters has taken since it launched its new name in August and opened school with its largest enrollment ever, at 538 students.
