Eastport Elementary School became an International Baccalaureate World school in August 2016 and is officially authorized to offer the IB’s Primary Years Programme (PYP) to students in kindergarten through Grade 5. The school demonstrates its commitment to the PYP and continues to develop the required standards and practices, beliefs and values by using an action plan to ensure ongoing development of the program. Eastport will prepare for their second IB evaluation in the year 2020-21, at which time the school will engage in a self study; a key element in the school's goal of sustained improvement.
Students at Eastport Elementary School are involved in a variety of community outreach programs.
Highlights and Upcoming Events
Eastport Elementary nurtures students as caring, active participants in a lifelong journey of learning by promoting real world action, as well as student engagement and agency.
Through the PYP's inquiry-based, transdisciplinary framework, Eastport challenges students to become independent thinkers who take responsibility for their learning as they explore local and global issues and opportunities in real-life contexts.
