About Us

A GROWING number of Houstonians are recognizing the strengths of attending a charter school, where the benefits are unmistakably clear.

Serving students in grade levels Pre-K through fifth, THE VARNETT SCHOOL strives to provide a strong basis in traditional academics, as well as instill in its students an awareness of and appreciation for the diversity among people living in one of the most international cities in America.

At THE VARNETT SCHOOL, we believe every child is a unique and special individual who has the ability to learn.
