Another wonderful year!
As we wrap up the 2013-14 school year, we would like to thank everyone for another great year at Belvedere. This was our first year as a Primary Years Program candidate school and the students enthusiastically embraced this new approach to learning.
Congratulations to the 5th graders as they move on to their new adventures soon. Enjoy your summer, everyone!

Primary Years Program
Belvedere Elementary School is a candidate school* for the Primary Years Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Belvedere Elementary School believes is important for our students.
*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme (and in addition the IB Career-related Certificate). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit http://www.ibo.org
