Becoming an International Baccalaureate School

During the 2020-2021 school year we have began our journey through the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP) framework!

Students attending North Woods for the 2020-2021 school year, will continue to transition into our IB journey. Students entering in kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade and Third Grade will all receive Spanish instruction during part of their day. Students in grades 4-5 will continue still follow the split strand of North Woods International’s prior choice program of the Spanish Partial Immersion Strand (SPI) & Global Strand. However, these separate strands will be phased out by the end of the 2022-2023 school year.

Although there is a distinction in grade levels, all students at North Woods International receive IB Curriculum.

At North Woods International, all of our students receive instruction using the International Baccalaureate curriculum.  The Fall of 2019 will mark the 2nd year of our IB Candidate School Status.  Our goal is to be fully accredited as an IB school by December of 2020.  As we continue on our IB journey, we are merging our Global and Spanish Partial Immersion strands, one grade at a time.  This fall (2020-2021 school year), all of our Kindergarten, first second and third grade students will receiving instruction in Spanish for part of the day through a team-teaching approach between English and Spanish teachers, and through the support of our Spanish speaking Amity Interns.  Our fourth and fifth grade students will continue in their current Global or Spanish Partial Immersion strand; however both strands will be receiving instruction using the International Baccalaureate curriculum.
