Summer Opportunity:  IB Innovation Academy for Incoming 9th Grade Students


The International Baccalaureate Organization was founded in 1967 to offer a strong educational program implementing the best educational practices to children of European diplomats and ambassadors. It began as the IB Diploma Programme for high school, and in the 1990s, the organization developed a Middle Years Programme (middle school) and a Primary Years Programme (elementary school). The International Baccalaureate (IB) is a global educational foundation intended to provide a broad and balanced curriculum for the well-rounded student. Its global curriculum promotes student-centered inquiry, critical thinking, effective communication, and the application of knowledge. Students learn to think creatively and independently as they immerse themselves in this interdisciplinary education.

Annapolis, Meade, and Old Mill High Schools are fully authorized by the IB to offer the IB Diploma Programme (DP) for students in grades 11 and 12 and the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP 9-10) for students in grades 9 and 10.

Annapolis, MacArthur, and Old Mill North Middle Schools are fully authorized by the IB to offer the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP 6-8) for students in grades 6 through 8.

Anne Arundel County Public Schools is proud to announce that Germantown, Manor View, Southgate, Hebron-Harman, and South Shore Elementary Schools were designated IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) World Schools in 2013 and 2014. Sunset, Overlook and Eastport Elementary Schools are currently IB PYP Candidate Schools. Tracey’s ES and Waugh Chapel ES are preparing to enter the IB PYP Candidate phase. These schools are community (not magnet) schools.
