The District completed the final phase of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (IBMYP) authorization process and expects to receive the official MYP accreditation from the IB Organization by the end of the school year.
The IBMYP encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers, emphasizes intellectual challenge, and develops communication skills, intercultural understanding and global engagement.
Teachers in grades 6-10 from Louis M. Klein Middle School and Harrison High School have been working in partnership towards the authorization of our Middle Years Program. Last spring, we finished our consultation process, which included a three day visit with a representative from the IB Organization and the submission of our Application for Authorization. We have completed the final process of the Candidate Phase, the Verification Visit from the IB Organization which took place virtually in the beginning of December.
The District is incredibly proud of the work our students and teachers have done throughout implementation process and we are eager to become a fully accredited IBMYP school.
