International Leadership of Texas builds new East Fort Worth Campus

A new School has started construction
East Fort Worth is the new home of the International Leadership of Texas campus. The school is located at 5901 Boca Raton and will encompass 14 acres.
The school is a unique category of education: it is charter public school. It will be a tri-lingual school, and students will learn English, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese to be highly competitive adults in the future workforce.
The school website states:
“At ILTexas, leadership and culture is incorporated in the classroom for all students. Students are given leadership roles teaching the concept of others before self. Each year, students put their dedication into action in a community service project and spend time learning about 12 important character traits that foster a good leader. These traits empower students to overcome challenges and create a better, and more productive society in which to live and work.”
Texas is a strong economic force in the world and its top three countries of export are Mexico, Canada, and China. China has become the second largest economy, and now, more than ever, it is critical that future generations are prepared for today’s internationally connected world.  At ILTexas, education is taught from a global perspective, where all students will graduate with the necessary language and tools needed for future leadership and success.
The curriculum at ILTexas, as steered by our mission, prepares students for exceptional leadership roles in the international community by emphasizing servant leadership, mastering the English, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese languages, and strengthening the body, mind and character.
Further, ILTexas has a college preparatory program whereby we not only provide our students with the instruction needed to be successful in college, but with the expectation that they will attend and be successful in college and beyond.
As part of our curriculum, we teach the TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) and ELPS (English Language Proficiency Standards) as curriculum standards. Moreover, we’ve adopted the both vertically and horizontally aligned Kilgo scope and sequence and supplemental resources, as guided by the research and life work of Dr. Margaret Kilgo. All state assessments are administered as required by the State of Texas.
