Mercer Elementary has been and continues to be an excellent school. We have a great staff, amazing families, and we are an authorized International Baccalaureate World School. The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) is based on two important characteristics. The first is the philosophy that students will learn through inquiry. Secondly, the program is a framework with important components including curriculum, language, character and service.
Why is this important for your child’s education? Instruction at a PYP school provides rigor to student learning through the IB framework. This serves the whole child, allowing your children to make deeper connections to the content being taught with a global outlook. This is a great benefit to both students and staff to be aware of our cultural diversity and learning the importance of community.
