Headwaters School is authorized under Federal law to enroll non-immigrant alien students. We have had students come from all over the world to study at Headwaters: China, Germany, South Korea, France, Mexico, Turkey, Vietnam, Greece, Ecuador, Pakistan, Russia, England, and more! Headwaters School is an International Baccalaureate school with a demanding curriculum. We expect that our international students will have sufficient English language proficiency to be successful in mainstream classes in all core subject areas. This means that all international students take standard courses in english, math, science, history and art. Please note that 9th and 10th grade international students are enrolled in an ESL support class in addition to their standard course load. Our classrooms are vibrant spaces that require students and teachers alike to engage in lively discourse. Many class assignments are discussion based and /or writing intensive.
