McGraw Elementary

An IB World School

IB Evaluation and Action Plan

2012-2013 was the year of McGraw's 3rd IB Primary Years Program (PYP) Evaluation. During the Spring of 2012 we conducted an in-depth Self Study to evaluate our school's progress compared to the IB Standards and Practices. This led to the development of an updated McGraw IB Action Plan.

On April 22 and 23, 2013 a team of experienced IB Primary Years Program educators conducted an Evaluation Visit in order to observe and compare practices at McGraw with the IB Standards, our Self-Study results, and our updated IB Action Plan. In the fall of 2013 we received a report from the IB Americas office detailing the findings of the visiting team, commendations, and recommendations for further growth. These results will help guide our continued implementation of a world-class education for McGraw students.

The Evaluation visit was an opportunity to celebrate what our school and students have accomplished since being authorized as PYP school in 2000. This has been made possible through the dedication of our staff and the strong support of our parents, volunteers and Poudre School District.
