Global Primary Academy and Global Intermediate Academy receive IB PYP authorization 

Congratulations to the dedicated teams at Global Primary Academy and Global Intermediate Academy on becoming an authorized International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme school! Following a rigorous authorization process, GPA and GIA received the good news this summer. On Tuesday, August 27, Mapleton’s Board of Education approved the authorization. 

This recent authorization makes GPA and GIA the second and third schools in Mapleton to offer the IB PYP Programme. York International School has been authorized as both PYP and MYP (Middle Years Programme) for several years. Leaders at GLA are already working on the MYP authorization process. 

The IB curriculum framework connects students to the world beyond school through meaningful fieldwork, inquiry, and global mindedness. IB learners strive to become inquirers, thinkers, and communicators.
