GMAS Informational Session - Documents
High Point Elementary is thrilled to announce we are now recognized as an official International Baccalaureate World School!!!! The IB World Programme focuses on "teaching students to think critically and independently, and how to inquire with care and logic." We have been developing our students' character through the attributes of the Learner Profile (caring, risk-taking, open-minded, balanced, knowledgeable, etc..) as well as offering Spanish as a second language to all students K-5. We believe this program is an important step towards growing our students as a future world citizen!
This is not only a significant achievement for our school but also for our community. Along with High Point, Heards Ferry Elementary and Lake Forest Elementary have also been authorized. Therefore, the Riverwood Cluster, which also includes Ridgeview Charter Middle and Riverwood International High School, is a PK-12 feeder pattern of International Baccalaureate World Schools and the first in Fulton County!!
For more information about the International Baccalaureate Primary Year Programme, please click here.
Thank you for your commitment to our school. We could not have done this without all of your dedication and support!!!
