​Glenwood, M.D. Bennie I.B Candidate Schools

- work begins towards PYP authorization-

The Greater Essex County District School Board is excited to announce that Glenwood Public School (Windsor) and M.D. Bennie Public School (Leamington) have been approved as Candidate Schools to offer the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme.

Program coordinators have been appointed in both schools and they will now pursue authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy – a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education – that we believe is important for our students.

Once teacher training has been completed Glenwood and M.D. Bennie will begin participation in a trial implementation leading up to official authorization from the IB Organization.
