    PYP Updates:

     Southgate is currently in the self study process in preparation for our evaluation visit in Spring of 2022.

     

    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 Southgate Vision:

     

    Through high expectations, rigorous teaching, and learning in a safe collaborative environment, all Southgate Elementary students will become lifelong learners as they participate in the global society.  They will exemplify citizenship, inquiry and open-mindedness, as they reflect upon and demonstrate respect for cultural diversity.


    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.
