Westchester Academy for International Studies Reviews

By , a Parent on

Westchester Academy is an International Baccalaureate School. In 2011, they were recongnized as a National Blue Ribbon School. WAIS is a public charter school in Spring Branch ISD. The campus houses middle and high school. Only 120 students per grade level are accepted into WAIS, which makes for smaller classes. The school concentrates on preparing students for college, even at the middle school level. My daughter has been a student at WAIS, so I know a lot of the students there. They all love the school and realize what an advantage the school is giving them.
