The International School of Texas will break ground in spring 2022 on a new 40,000-square-foot main campus located at 15506 W. Hwy. 71, Bee Cave.

The new campus will be built on the same site as the existing middle school, which school officials acquired land for in 2020. Elementary students are still located on the school’s original campus at 4402 Hudson Bend, Austin. The new development will house both middle and elementary students on one campus.


Construction will include an academic building with science, technology, engineering and math; design; art labs and a performing arts and athletics center. Development for the performing arts and athletics center is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2022, followed by the academic building in 2023 and the opening of the main campus by the start of the 2023 academic year.

The private school started in 2013 with 60 students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade and now has over 180 students. The school is a certified International Baccalaureate World School and draws students from around the area, including Lakeway, Steiner Ranch, Dripping Springs and Westlake, Head of School Tim Reilly said.

“We’re incredibly excited about it,” Reilly said. “We have such a dedicated community who are banding together to help our dream campus become a reality, and we are looking forward to breaking ground this spring.”
