• General Information

    Balloon launchDr. Maya Angelou French Immersion is an International Baccalaureate PYP World School. We are among the first elementary school in Prince George's County to achieve this distinction. The implementation of the program is a process that focuses on the best teaching and learning practices from around the world. It was designed in 1968 as a solution to enabling international students to qualify for universities around the world. With the combination of academic rigor, international mindedness, and best teaching practices, educators and parents have since realized the need for young people to understand and become active in a global society. The Primary Years Programme is designed for students from ages 3 to 12. It focuses on the growth of the developing child, touching hearts, as well as minds, and encompasses social, physical, emotional, cultural, and academic needs. Students are taught to reflect on and assess their learning. The basic curriculum framework is developed around the essential elements of the programme: attitudes, concepts, knowledge, skills, and action. The PYP draws on world-wide research to create a relevant, engaging, challenging, and significant educational framework for all children.
