What makes the program unique?
Students think globally, and develop respect for all cultures.
Subjects are not taught in isolation, but are connected to each other through six themes.
Students ask challenging questions, think critically and learn skills across all subject areas.
- Students take responsibility for their own learning.
- Students are active in their communities and take their learning beyond the classroom.
- Students learn another language. The IB program includes a Spanish component for all students and continues in its Spanish speaking (TBE) classrooms.
How to apply
A kindergarten lottery is held in January to early March. Students interested in grades K-5 can complete an interest form to be put on a waitlist. Apply for the IB program.
