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.
Our promise is to provide a nurturing and rigorous learning environment. We will instill within our students a love of learning by identifying their positive distinctions through academics, the arts and athletics. We empower students to be responsible, contributing members of an international community.
As a result, Tubman students strive to be life-long learners who are persistent problem solvers, are inquisitive about the world, have a strong sense of self, and articulate their thoughts, feelings, and ideas through ongoing reflection.
Tubman students strive to be empathetic by understanding different perspectives while being mindful of their unique viewpoint.
Tubman students strive to be caring and principled, and to possess a foundation of knowledge that enables them to build a more peaceful world.
