Private Schools

As a full-service firm, Thompson & Horton attorneys are well-equipped to represent private schools, in addition to traditional public school districts and charter schools. We understand the overlaps and distinctions for each educational entity in state and federal law.

Private schools in Texas are exempt from many state requirements that apply to public schools in areas such as teacher certification, textbooks, high-stakes testing, and public records. Yet private schools must comply with laws related to contracts, health and safety, and other issues.

Our attorneys can assist private school administrators in a wide range of matters, including business transactions, contracting, real estate, student issues, litigation, and special investigations. We provide preventative legal advice and representation if issues arise.

Students are at the heart of all schools, and Thompson & Horton attorneys bring the same legal acumen, responsiveness and candor to help all our clients fulfill their missions.
