• IB Did you know
    Did you know that International Baccalaureate schools design their curriculum around state standards and guidelines? Schools throughout the district follow the scope and sequence in which information is taught to students.  The teachers and administrative team at The School at St. George Place review the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and collaboratively plan how to align information in a meaningful way that connects to the units of inquiry.    The information below provides a snapshot as to how the IB classroom extends learning beyond the TEKS and adds rigor and meaning to learning.
