Whitney M. Young, Jr. Elementary is an authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) World school. We offer the Primary Years Programme (PYP), and focus on the development of international mindedness in our students.

The PYP:

  • addresses students’ academic needs and their social and emotional well-being
  • encourages students to develop independence and to take responsibility for their own learning
  • supports students’ effort to gain understanding of the world and to function effectively within it
  • helps students to establish personal values as a foundation on which international-mindedness will flourish.
