McGraw Elementary

An IB World School

IB Evaluation and Action Plan

Every five years, our school participates in the IB Program Evaluation process. 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. This led to the development of our updated McGraw IB Action Plan

On February 22 and 23, 2018, a team of experienced IB Primary Years Program educators will conduct 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 Spring of 2018, we will receive 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 is an opportunity to celebrate what our school and students have accomplished since being authorized as a 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.
