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 promise is to provide a culture of academic excellence, foster a rigorous and nurturing learning environment, and instill within students a love of learning by identifying their positive distinctions, whether academic, artistic, or athletic, thus empowering them to be responsible, contributing members of a global community.

Free Open Gym Fridays

Thank you to all the families who joined us this year.  Free Open Gym Fridays are done for this school year, but we look forward to seeing you again next year!

*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.
