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.
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.
Agassiz students will be life long learners who are persistent problem solvers, are curious about the world, have a strong sense of self, and are able to articulate their thoughts, feelings, and ideas.
Agassiz students will be able to analyze a concept and determine their own viewpoint while respecting differing opinions.
Agassiz students will show integrity and empathy, and possess a foundation of knowledge that enables them to thrive in a diverse, changing society.
