    Middle Years Programme
    Sutton Middle School is an International Baccalaureate® World School
    Willis A. Sutton Middle School has the distinction of being an International Baccalaureate® (IB) World School.  We are part of the Middle Years Programme (MYP) that goes from 6th through 10th grades. All schools within the North Atlanta Cluster are IB schools:
    • Bolton Academy, Morris Brandon, Garden Hills, W. T. Jackson, E. Rivers, and Sarah Smith all offer the Primary Years Programme (PYP)
    • North Atlanta High School offers the MYP, the Diploma Programme (DP), and is currently in the authorization phase for the Career-related Programme (CP).
    An IB education:
    • focuses on learners
    • develops effective approaches to teaching and learning
    • works within global contexts
    • explores significant content
    The IB aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

    It is the IB's goal to develop life-long and well-rounded learners who:
    • are open-minded and optimistic when faced with challenges
    • confident in their own identities
    • make ethical decisions
    • join with others in celebrating our common humanity
    • are prepared to apply what they learn in real-world, complex, and unpredictable situations.
