Welcome

In Fall 2016, we opened a new (in process) International Baccalaureate® elementary school, at the former Adams STEM Academy at 503 Oak Street. We are very excited about this opportunity to offer our students a new way of learning.

 

About International Preschool

Ypsilanti International Pre-School follows the educational IB standards referred to as Primary Year Program or “PYP.”  This program develops the youngest students to be inquisitive, thoughtful learners. 

The School Day

The pre- school day is centered around project-based learning, sensory play and includes areas such as Art, Discovery, Music & Movement, Technology, Social Studies and more. Students learn topics and concepts in a trans-disciplinary method employing areas of inquiry including Responsibility, Form, Function, Reflection, Causation, Change, Perspective, Connection.
