ib world logo Congratulations to W.M. Irvin Elementary School for successfully completing the authorization process to become an official International Baccalaureate World School. The IB program offers a high-quality continuum of international education and students will be participating in the Primary Years Program. As an IB World School, WMIES is now part of a global community of schools committed to developing knowledgeable, caring young people who will be ready to negotiate their futures successfully and make contributions resulting in a more harmonious and peaceful world

The IB program has a positive impact on students, schools, and the wider community with learning going well beyond the classroom. Its unique and innovative approach to learning means both students and teachers are genuinely engaged with the programs and benefit from being a part of an unparalleled global network. Students are able to participate in international inquiries and educators work with their peers internationally to ensure that the IB remains at the cutting edge of international education.
