Exciting, long-awaited news: a new Great Hearts campus is coming to San Antonio in fall 2018.
Great Hearts Western Hills will be located at 8702 Ingram Rd., San Antonio, TX 78245 (map). The school will serve grades K-4 in 2018-19, eventually expanding to 12th grade.
Current Great Hearts Texas campuses:
- Great Hearts Monte Vista South (serving grades K-5) and Great Hearts Monte Vista North (serving grades 6-12), near downtown San Antonio. Technically, these are two separate campuses—both were founded in 2014.
- Great Hearts Northern Oaks, in north San Antonio—founded 2015
- Great Hearts Irving, in the Dallas-Fort Worth area—founded 2015
The Great Hearts school model offers classical education at a tuition-free public charter school. (What is a charter school? Read more from the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools and Texas Charter Schools Association.)
On a personal note, my kids, F.T. and G.N., are enrolled at Great Hearts Monte Vista South; and F.T. has been there since the founding. It has been a great education for them, even though they have different learning styles. The school is inclusive towards students with special needs, like F.T.
