    Our teachers have developed and relfected on our IB PYP units of study known as "Planners".  Each of these planners are developed around a Central Idea and Key Concepts.  At the elementary level, the IB PYP also spends a lot of time and energy to help our students become Risk-Takers.  We also encourage them to demonstrate empathy, integrity, confidence, curiosity, thoughtfulness, knowledge, and tolerance.  


    For more information about our IB Program and progress, please reach out to our PYP Coordinator, Mr. Samuel Jones via email at sajones@atlanta.k12.ga.us.
