The Ann Arbor Public Schools is pleased to offer fully authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) World Schools as follows:
- Primary Years Programme (PYP) at Mitchell Elementary School, grades Pre-K-5th grade;
- Middle Years Programme (MYP) in partnership at Scarlett Middle School (grades 6 - 8) and Huron High School (grades 9 and 10)
- Diploma Programme (DP) at Huron High School, grades 11 and 12, with 27 DP course options. Huron DP course descriptions HERE.
In addition, the IB Career-related Programme (CP) at Huron High School is currently in the candidacy phase of IB World School development.
When all four programs listed above (PYP, MYP, DP, CP) are fully authorized, Ann Arbor will offer the full continuum of IB education for all students from Pre-Kindergarten all the way through 12th grade.
The video below shares more information about these internationally minded, inquiry focused opportunities.
Would you like to enroll your child? Students enrolled at Mitchell, Scarlett and Huron - and those who apply to come from within Ann Arbor, Washtenaw County, and surrounding counties - will participate in schooling emphasizing:
- Inquiry - students asking questions, students finding answers;
- Global awareness - connecting to the local, state, national and international community;
- Action and Service - learning by doing, making a positive impact;
- World languages - all students learning a world language;
- Access and Equity - intentional development of curriculum and supports connected to the needs of learners.
We look forward to sharing these great internationally recognized learning opportunities with families in and around Ann Arbor!
Note: Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization (ibo.org) may offer any of its academic programs: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career Programme (CP). Candidate status does not guarantee that authorization will be granted.
