In the spring of 2013, MacMillan became the first IB Primary Years Program in Montgomery Public Schools. We aim to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. We also challenge students to take an interest in international studies, humanities, communications, and technology. MacMillan serves approximately 380 students in Kindergarten through Grade 5, through an interactive approach to learning that is enhanced with a wide variety of technology. Students are encouraged to become global thinkers as they develop an understanding of the world through the study of different cultures and humanities. Our students leave us prepared to live more effectively in an ever increasingly interdependent world. They also learn to appreciate the differences in all of us that make all of our societies unique in nature.
Our students receive exemplary academic instruction due to multiple effective resources being in place. The collaboration amongst colleagues, grade level planning, and pedagogical book studies provide professional development opportunities and promotes camaraderie among staff. Vertical alignment of standards, embedded best practices for instruction with researched-based curriculum, and RTI (Response to Intervention) that encompasses the whole child drives our objectives to better meet student needs.
MacMillan celebrates the success and accomplishments of students through student-led conferences, open house activities, and parent/teacher meetings. Students take ownership of their learning targets and their data. Parents see the importance and worth of their child's learning and therefore get involved as an active participant in the education of their child.
