As an authorized IB world school, teachers use IB methodologies: Learner Profile, Approaches to Learning and Global Contexts. Students will also participate in comprehensive projects that are integrated across curricular areas of study and involve real-world learning experience for our students.An IB program aims to develop internationally-minded learners, working within a global context and explores significant content. An IB program has a strong world language component which would provide our dual-language students with an option to continue their focus into middle school.
