Corbett Prep eighth graders showcased their volunteerism and altruism in the International Baccalaureate Community Service Project Expo.
The students began by considering the many ways they could make a difference in the world. Through the community project, students experienced the responsibility of completing a significant piece of work over an extended period of time. They had to put their chosen subject into a global context and reflect on their learning as IB students.
"I am impressed that we are sending these kids out to high school with this kind of passion for the community," said Middle School Co-Division Leader Jennifer Jagdmann.
From reading to children at an orphanage in India to raising money for animal shelters, watch how each student is making a difference.
About the International Baccalaureate (IB) at Corbett Prep
All International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes require students to take on in-depth projects at certain milestones in their education. For the Primary Years Programme, fifth graders share research and reflection during Corbett Prep's annual IB Exhibition. Eighth graders complete the Middle Years Programme with a community project.
Corbett Prep offers the Middle Years Programme (MYP) for sixth through eighth grade. The Primary Years Programme (PYP) spans PreK3 through fifth grade. Both the community project and the fifth-grade Exhibition celebrate students' transitions to the next phase of their educations.
