Two feeder schools to Oakmont are now offering IB Programs!


Sargeant Elementary Eich Middle School  

This is a very exciting time for our IB community, with the combined IB programs we now have a clear pathway from Primary school through to High School, this is what is known as the 'Continuum of IB' education.

Both programs-
  • have a strong international dimension
  • develop intercultural understanding
  • requires study across a broad range of subjects
  • includes both individual subjects and interdisciplinary areas
  • gives special emphasis to learning languages
  • focuses on developing skills for lifelong learning
  • provides opportunities for individual and collaborative planning and research
  • encourages students to become responsible, active members of their community


IB Primary Years Programme
Sargeant Elementary School has now finished the process to become an IB Primary Years Program (PYP) School. For more information please visit their website HERE or contact the IB Coordinator- Regina DeArcos rdearcos@rcsdk8.org

The PYP is for students aged 3-12.

The PYP curriculum provides schools with a framework of five essential elements- knowledge, concepts, skills, attitudes, and action that young students need to equip themselves for successful lives, both now and in the future. The PYP aims to create a curriculum that is engaging, relevant, challenging and significant. The curriculum is transdisciplinary, meaning that it focuses on issues that go across subject areas.
