KISD Plans for School Utilizing the International Baccalaureate Programme

Katy ISD Makes Plans for Future New School Utilizing the International Baccalaureate ProgrammeAt the current Maurice L. Wolfe Elementary School site located at State Highway 6 and Grisby, Katy Independent School District plans to build a new school serving kindergarten through 12th grade students that will implement the highly acclaimed International Baccalaureate (IB) programme.  Children zoned to Wolfe Elementary will be grandfathered in for kindergarten through 5th grade, but for other elementary, middle, and high school students, this new school will be a "test in" school.

The IB programme is a recognized leader in the field of international education.  It is a non-profit, mission-driven foundation that offers three challenging programmes for ages 3 to 19.  These three different programs are The Primary Years Programme (PYP) for students ages 3 to 12 which focuses on the development of the whole child in the classroom and in the world outside; The Middle Years Programme (MYP) for students ages 11 to 16 which provides a framework of academic challenge and life skills through embracing and transcending traditional school subjects; and The Diploma Programme for students ages 16 to 19 which is a demanding two-year curriculum that meets the needs of highly motivated students and leads to a qualification that is recognized by leading universities around the world.

This new school’s IB standing will certainly benefit students in the area and holds the potential to increase property values in the Energy Corridor.
