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.

Agassiz students strive to be caring and principled, and to possess a foundation of knowledge that enables them to build a more peaceful world.
Agassiz Partners with Hope for The Day
Agassiz will initiate a new proactive suicide prevention program this year through a partnership with Hope for The Day. Hope for The Day is a Chicago-based non-profit organization that focuses on suicide prevention by providing outreach and mental health education through the use of music and art. Initially, program implementation will focus on training staff and teachers on mental health awareness and connecting students in need to community resources. The goal of this partnership is to build a community climate that supports social emotional awareness and talking about feelings so that we can best promote the safety of all of our students.
