The International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) officially certified Agassiz in the Middle Years Program (MYP) in the Spring of 2017. Agassiz offers the MYP program to all students in 6th through 8th grade. Agassiz is pleased to announce that the school will begin the three year process to become authorized in the Primary Years Program (PYP) to students in grades Pre-K through 5.

We will instill within our students a love of learning by identifying their positive distinctions through academics, the arts and athletics. We empower students to be responsible, contributing members of an international community.
As a result, Agassiz students strive to be life-long learners who are persistent problem solvers, are inquisitive about the world, have a strong sense of self, and articulate their thoughts, feelings, and ideas through ongoing reflection.
Agassiz students strive to be empathetic by understanding different perspectives while being mindful of their unique viewpoint.
Agassiz students strive to be caring and principled, and to possess a foundation of knowledge that enables them to build a more peaceful world.
