IB @ Peirce
We are Peirce
Peirce School was authorized during the summer of 2017 in the Primary Years International Baccalaureate Program (PYP), which is available to all students in Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grades. Students in the Edgewater community now have access to an IB program from Pre-K through 12th grades as Peirce and Senn continue the IB Middle Years Program from 6th-10th grades and then the Diploma Program through 12th grade.
Peirce - Senn partnership
Peirce provides the IB Middle Years Program (MYP) to its 6th, 7th, and 8th graders; Senn High School offers the program in the 9th and 10th grades. Faculty from the two schools collaborate to ensure a smooth and meaningful transition for students academically as well as personally and socially.
