Robert E. Lee Elementary School, which will become Geneva Heights Elementary School in July 2018, is officially now an International Baccalaureate campus!
The campus is now a Primary Years Programme (PYP) school, which assists students ages 3-12 in developing the skills, knowledge and attitudes needed to excel in their studies and in their personal growth. To become an official PYP school, the school participated in a nearly three-year process that included a review of qualifications and achievements, several months of consultations and trial implementation, and verification visits.
“This IB authorizations means we will be focused on turning our kids into world students, teaching them about different cultures and how they can impact the world as individuals,” Principal Bert Hart said.
J.L. Long Middle School and Woodrow Wilson High School, which Lee Elementary feeds into, are also IB schools, meaning students can stay in the program until they graduate.
