The article entitled, “The Transformative Nature of an IB Education,” is the perfect answer to why Harry Stone became an IB school. Additionally, it explains the “intangible” benefits of an IB education that we often have difficulty expressing. We can talk about IB Learner Profile Traits and Approaches to Learning, but to see the students successfully instigating, implementing and engaging in action is the proof of the value of our program.
About the IB programmes
For students aged 3-19. IB programmes challenge students to excel in their studies, and encourage both personal and academic achievement.
Harry Stone has chosen to supplement it’s Elementary years Montessori program with the IB Middle Years Programme for the 6th-8th grade years.
Harry Stone Montessori Academy is an authorized IB World School. IB World Schools are part of a global community who share a common philosophy – a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education – that we believe is important for our students.
Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme (and in addition the IB Career-related certificate).For further information about the IB and its programmes visit http://www.ibo.org.
World-class educators and students
The IB supports schools and teachers to provide a rigorous, high-quality education, offering professional development that improves pedagogy and leadership.
IB students at university
Research from leading institutions shows that IB students are more likely than their peers to succeed in higher education.
Middle Years Programme (ages 11-16)
With great care given to social and emotional wellbeing, students in the Middle Years Programme (MYP) are encouraged to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers prepared for further studies.
The MYP is a challenging framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world.
