The International Baccalaureate program enables us to teach Utah State Core Standards with greater rigor and depth, while also helping students develop social/emotional skills and an awareness of global issues. We believe that students learn best when instruction and assessment are differentiated to meet individual needs. The following is a sampling of the strategies, materials, and assessment tools used by our teachers.
As much as possible, all content is taught through the IB units of inquiry. Social Studies and Science most often are the foundation of an IB unit. Teachers draw on the following resources in planning and implementing these IB units.

- Lexia RAPID Assessment
