Academically Rigorous

We are a CPS Neighborhood and Magnet Cluster School with a Fine and Performing Arts Focus.

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.

Artistically Rich

In 1999, Agassiz became a Fine and Performing Arts Magnet Cluster Program.

Culturally Diverse

Now with over 500 students being served in Pre-K through eighth grade, Agassiz continues to be culturally and demographically diverse.

Our Promise

Our Mission

Our promise is to provide a nurturing and rigorous learning environment.

Agassiz Elementary School is a candidate school* for the PYP. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World 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). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
