IB PYP at South Shore Elementary School
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 South Shore Vision:
Mission Statement: As a Primary Years Program School, the mission of South Shore Elementary School is to cultivate caring, global citizens by modeling a culture of positivity, reflection, innovation, dedication and empathy.
Vision Statement: Our students will be empowered to take action to better themselves and society as global citizens.
