We are an IB World School now!

Oakridge Einstein campus has earned the distinction of being an International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme World School, authorized to offer the rigorous and acclaimed Primary Years Programme (PYP).

Congratulations to the entire teacher and student community!

Becoming an IB World School is a lengthy, rigorous process. Since 2009, teachers worked together to develop a curriculum that is consistent with the inquiry-based philosophy of the PYP program. The students have been benefitting from this new approach and the way it capitalizes on their strengths and interests.

School had a prelim visit in 2010, a pre-authorization visit in 2011, and then, in the second week of March 2012, school had a verification visit by a team from the IB office. The team met with administrators, teachers, specialists and parents, and evaluated the schools’ preparedness to continue to implement the PYP. After the visit, the teams reported their findings to the IB offices, who have determined that our campus should be authorized as an IB World School.

One Response so far.
