Following its 15th year of business in The Woodlands area, Cunae International School plans to expand its Creekside Park facility with classrooms and a food truck-style dining area for its upper school students.


The school, situated on a 6-acre campus at 5655 Creekside Forest Drive, The Woodlands, began planning for the approximately 2,600-square-foot addition before the COVID-19 pandemic due to enrollment growth, and officials now expect the expansion to be ready before the fall semester kicks off.


“We had hoped to have had that building open by now, but COVID[-19] did put a bit of a dent in that so we’re still working on the foundation. We definitely want to be open for the new school year, but hopefully before then," Director Anji Price said.


The expansion will house three new classrooms for grades 7-12 in addition to the "tuck shop," which Price said would be comparable to an indoor version of food truck dining serving healthy menu options. Once the commercial kitchen opens, Price said cooking classes may also be offered.


The expansion is part of the school's ongoing plans for growth, which could include construction of another building within the next five years housing new classrooms and a music room. While enrollment dipped slightly this year due to COVID-19, Price said she expects interest in the school to increase over the coming years and that the planned expansions will facilitate the arrival of dozens of new students in the future.


“Even today I’ve just had so many people book tours, and I think what’s happening is they’re realizing 2021 will be a little more normal," she said. "There’s still a hard year ahead of us, but I think by next year we’ll be back on track. And we’re holding our own.”
