    PYP Updates: 

    This school year, we begin the Self-study process!  It is an exciting time for our school to grow as a IB PYP school. Our school's evaluation visit is scheduled for the 2022-2023 school year.  The evaluation team will assess our school's growth of the IB Standards and Practices for us to continue a success IB PYP programme.


    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.

    Hebron Harman Vision: 

    The Frank Hebron-Harman Elementary School's mission is to provide an engaging, challenging, safe and culturally responsible learning environment with an emphasis on higher-level student inquiry in order to prepare all students with life skills and knowledge for a successful present and future.  "All Students Can Succeed. No Exceptions."
