Irwin Avenue Elementary

Third Ward's own Irwin Avenue Elementary has received its certification as an International Baccalaureate programme, becoming CMS's only county-wide elementary school with this certification. Congratulations to Principal Judy Fahl and the faculty and staff at the school!
The International Baccalaureate was founded in Switzerland in 1968, with a mission "to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect." For more information, see www.ibo.org.
