IB Self Study and Evaluation Process at McGraw
Every five years, McGraw participates in the IB Program Evaluation process. Program Evaluation is an opportunity to celebrate what our school and students have accomplished since being authorized as a Primary Years Program (PYP) school in 2000 and to identify next steps in our implementation of the program.
During the Spring and Fall of 2017 we conducted an in-depth Self Study to evaluate our school's progress compared to the IB Standards and Practices. On February 22 and 23, 2018, 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. We received a report from the IB Americas office detailing the findings of the visiting team, commendations, and recommendations for further growth. Based on this process, we determined next steps and a strategy for enhancing the PYP at McGraw.
Our school began a new IB Self Study and Evaluation process during the 2021-2022 school year which will conclude with an evaluation visit in the winter/spring of 2023.
