About the Project

Founded in 1956, Awty International School is the largest private school in the City of Houston and the second largest international school in the United States. The student body is composed of over 60 nationalities. The school provides a challenging education leading to either the International Baccalaureate or the French Baccalaureate. Awty celebrates linguistic, cultural, and international diversity and seeks to maximize the students’ potential in a range of academic and extracurricular pursuits. Tellepsen constructed the 65,000-square-foot Levant Foundation Building which provides administrative and classroom space to the growing campus and includes a new soccer field.
