Apple on BooksTHE WOODLANDS, Texas- Slated to open in the fall of 2009, Woodlands International School/Escuela Internacional Woodlands is an independent, not-for-profit primary school that will use a dual language immersion program to provide a truly international education to its students. Imagine your child speaking two languages, learning academic subjects in the context of real world situations and preparing for success in the global marketplace.

All academic subjects will be taught in both English and Spanish. As soon as the school opens, it will begin the application process to be authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme.

Spanish is one of the fastest growing languages in the world, with 364 million Spanish speakers worldwide. It is estimated that the United States has 28 million Spanish speakers. Research shows there are multiple benefits to learning and mastering a second language early in life. These include: a positive impact on IQ and creative thinking; enhanced performance across the academic spectrum; and economic and employment advantages.
