IB PROGRAM  

As of July 2020, Stokes School has officially been authorized as an International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) to educate knowledgeable scholars who care about the world in which they live and who want to learn more about the world’s people.

IB schools exist across the globe and encourage knowledgeable scholars who care about the world in which they live in and to want to learn more about the world’s people.  These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that the Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom Public Charter School believes is important for our students.

The aim of all IB programmes is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet help to create a better and more peaceful world.

Many of the preliminary steps are already in place.  Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom Public Charter School is already a school where:

 
  • Teachers plan collaboratively and include specialists from across the school community,

  • Students learn in the language of the community and in another world language,

  • Students explore concepts across the curriculum,

  • Physical Education and the Arts are a fundamental part of our whole child approach,

  • International-mindedness and community service are integral to the mission.

 

Through it all, we will continue to prepare scholars committed to community service and social justice who think, speak, read, write and learn in two languages.

 

Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom Public Charter School is a candidate school* for the Primary Years Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School.

 

These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom Public Charter School believes is important for our students.

 

The aim of all IB programmes is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet help to create a better and more peaceful world.

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme (and in addition the IB Career-related Programme). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
