We are a CPS Neighborhood and Magnet Cluster School with a Fine and Performing Arts Focus.
The International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) officially authorized Harriet Tubman Elementary School in the Middle Years Program (MYP) in 2017 and the Primary Years Programme (PYP) in 2021. Tubman offers the PYP to students in Pre-K through grade 5 and the MYP to all students in 6th through 8th grade.
In 1999, Harriet Tubman Elementary School became a Fine and Performing Arts Magnet Cluster Program.
