Spring 2023

Welcome to our New IB and IH Families

It's hard to believe that spring has arrived and with it all of our IB traditions and celebrations. A special welcome to the 200 students and families who will be joining us in grades 9-11 for the 2023-24 school year. We hope you find that we are who we say we are- a closely knit learning community that values kindness, global-mindedness, and thoughtful discourse.

Parents: If only one parent/guardian received this newsletter and you would like to add another email, please email karen.stanton@pisd.edu and we will add the additional guardian to our mailing list.

New panthers: Save the date for our August 3 (tentative) Camp Panther, a day on which we welcome you to the IB World School learning community.
