Giaudrone Middle School is a candidate school* for the Middle Years Program. Candidate schools pursue authorization as an IB World School. IB schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education.
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
The organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programs of international education and rigorous assessment to foster active, compassionate and lifelong learners.
All GMS students are part of the IB and required to take the 8 core subjects: arts, language and literature, design, physical education, language acquisition, math, science, and individuals in societies.
* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its three academic programs: the Primary Years Program (PYP), the Middle Years Program (MYP), or the Diploma Program.
