International Baccalaureate Program


San Jacinto Elementary is fully authorized International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (PYP) school.  IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.


Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP).

International Baccalaureate's Mission
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end, the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
