Since 2014, Maxwell Academy has been authorized as an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School offering the Primary Years Program for Grades K-6. Now that we also have Grades 7-8, we are delighted to announce we are a candidate school for the IB Middle Years Program (MYP). This expansion is a welcome opportunity, and it will position our school to offer a specialty, high demand program that is not readily available in this region. At Maxwell Academy, making global connections is a key component of the curriculum. Students receive Mandarin and Spanish instruction, and we augment our students’ learning by having an active international studies program within our district. “The ultimate goal of instruction at Maxwell is to help our learners become inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators who are principled, caring, risk-takers that are balanced and reflective,” shared Principal Lawson.
