The Khabele School began the 2016-17 school year under the name Headwaters School in an effort to rebrand and reposition its teaching philosophy.
The school, serving students age 18 months through 12th grade, has two campuses in Southwest Austin. The school begins with a Montessori program and ends with an International Baccalaureate program.
The Khabele School was founded in 2001, followed by Primavera Montessori School in 2002, Head of School Ted Graf said. The two schools merged in 2011 and retained the Khabele name until Aug. 11, when the Headwaters School name went into effect.
