Mission

By developing the PYP essential elements – concepts, skills, attitudes, knowledge and action –  we will cultivate metacognitive and critical thinking skills through a rigorous and engaging curriculum and learning environment. This will prepare students to navigate, innovate, and solve problems to flourish within a changing world.

By modeling growth mindset and acknowledging each other as capable individuals, we will empower students to reflect on their learning, behavior, and relationships in order to take purposeful action.

By building a sense of personal and shared responsibility while nurturing meaningful relationships, we will foster international-mindedness. We will instill a commitment to the global community by embracing intercultural appreciation and understanding that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

Vision

Spicewood aspires to be a caring community of innovative, globally minded citizens who take action.

History

Spicewood opened its doors to students in September 1974.
