Highland Park Elementary is a designated International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) school.
Our students learn to think and act globally as they explore complex issues, take action to solve problems and reflect
on what they’ve learned. We offer specialized coursework in Mandarin Chinese, art and physical education; we challenge
students to think critically about science by asking questions and exploring problems. We also provide artist-in-residence
programs to inspire students in the visual and performing arts. Other learning activities include band, choir, theater, dance,
Lego League, running club and special-interest teams and clubs. Our entire school staff takes pride in promoting the
success of each student, and provides all students with opportunities to see themselves as members of a local, national,
and global community.
