    Germantown Elementary School is a community committed to preparing our students for an increasingly global society. Germantown Elementary staff will collaborate with students, parents, and community members to promote academic excellence for our lifelong learners reflecting a respectful, responsible and safe environment.


    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.
