The Magellan International School
has found a home!
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Magellan International School we are delighted to officially announce that MIS has a found a home! After many months of searching for the ideal location and negotiating a lease we can now tell you where the School will be located. The address is:
7130 Chimney Corners
Austin, TX 78731
The School facility is conveniently located in Northwest Austin near the corner of Far West Blvd. and Chimney Corners and across the street from Doss Elementary. It is just a few minutes from Mopac. The facility was originally built as a school. Here are some of the highlights:
• Over 8,000 square feet, most of it comprised of very large classrooms
• Designed to meet the requirements of a primary years school
• Ample playground with a fully built out playscape and separate areas for Pre-Primary and K+ students
• Secured access with digital keypad in main entry
• Easy drop off and pickup driveway
Most independent schools don't have the opportunity to start off in such a facility and in fact many start out in a home, retail space, or within a church. Being able to start on day one with a real school building is truly a blessing. So, make sure you spread the word and also remind those you know that we are still accepting applications for Pre-Primary through 2nd Grade. Visit our Admissions page for more information.
From now until August the MIS team will be busy at work on the facility giving it a new upgraded look, performing any required maintenance, and filling it with the furniture and supplies that will be needed to start classes on August 24th, 2009.
As a non-profit school we ask for your support as we work on our facility. We will be patching, painting, cleaning, decorating, gardening, and many other 'INGs. If you believe that you can assist us in any way please don't hesitate to contact us at (512) 961-6431 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to get your help!.
Securing the facility involved many of our supporters, including Board Members and families, that came together to provide the financial backing that allowed us to sign the lease. To all of you that have supported our School and, indeed even enrolled your children before we could even give you a street address, we thank you immensely for the trust and faith that you have placed in us.
We are very excited about having reached this major milestone in the history of the school. That said, we still need your financial support in the form of tax deductible donations to enhance and grow our program even further. Please visit our Giving page for more information.
In summary, we are delighted that we now have ourselves a facility and eagerly await the beginning of classes on August 24th!
