    The IB Mission: 

    The International Baccalaureate® aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

    To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.

    These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.


    The Eastport Vision:

    At Eastport Elementary, we aspire to provide a world-class education in partnership with families and the community. We strive to inspire students to love and thirst for knowledge, so that they are internally motivated to attain higher goals. It is our belief that students in our care have the right to learn in a risk-free, safe and nurturing environment. We also believe that, as members of the Eastport community of learners, students and teachers have specific responsibilities. Teachers are expected to nurture their students, provide quality and meaningful instruction, and are expected to continue their own professional growth. Students are accountable for being engaged in learning, participating appropriately and growing socially, emotionally and academically. Both are expected to contribute to the overall well-being of all individuals in order to achieve academic excellence and positive lifelong habits.

    We are looking for new IB (International Baccalaureate) teachers and program coordinators! If you are a creative educator, with a passion for global education, then the IB program may be the right fit for you!

    Please take a look at the following video and text resources and join us in person on April 20th to learn about our program through hands-on experiences and conversation with staff already innovating within AACPS IB schools! Information about the event is below.  Please use the QR code to register by April 15.
