The following information was sent to us by Prince George's County Public Schools:
James Madison Middle School and Frederick Douglass High School are now officially part of the network of campuses that offer the prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme.
An extension of the rigorous IB Diploma program, the Middle Years Programme’s guiding philosophy is to develop an academically-proficient, globally-minded learner. Frederick Douglass and James Madison had been working collaboratively towards becoming IB World Schools since 2008. The schools received notification on Oct. 17 that they were formally authorized to offer the Middle Years Programme, making them the only IB World Schools in Prince George’s County Public Schools.
