Frederick W. Benteen is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) and is pursuing authorization as an IB World School.
IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improving the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high-quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision. Candidate status gives no guarantee the authorization will be granted.

Our teachers are in the beginning stages of developing 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. In June of 2020, Benteen submitted our IB application and is hopeful that we will become a fully authorized International Baccalaureate PYP school by the end of the 2020 - 2021 school year.
For more information about our IB Program and progress, please reach out to our Signature Programming Coach, Mr. Gerard Latimore via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
