International Baccalaureate World School

Did you know in the spring of 2018 James R. Watson Elementary became an authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) World School?

The IB program offers an international education that develops the intellectual, personal, emotional, and social skills needed to live, learn, and work in a rapidly globalizing world. Schools must be authorized by the IB organization to offer the program. The IB has a hard-earned reputation for high standards of teaching, pedagogical leadership, and student achievement. Through the IB program, we are able to blend our Indiana State Academic Standards with the IB framework to create the best learning environment possible.
