Welcome to the Hernandez IB Middle Years Programme
All of our 6th-8th grade children are part of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP), a 3 year international program for students aged 11-16. We are very proud of our IB MYP, and we encourage our students to go on to IB high schools to complete the DP in 11th-12th grade, especially at our IB feeder school, Stony Point High School. Studies have shown that students who are enrolled in IB have a better chance of going to and staying in college.
Community & Service Early Release
All of our 8th graders will participate in a Community Project this school year. 8th graders can work in groups of up to 3 or individually. We here at Hernandez are very excited to see what our 8th graders will come up with this year. Fundraising has already started for an orphanage outreach project!
All of our students will participate in community, service and action. Our next Community Day will be September 28, 2016. We have had guest speakers such as Mobile Loaves and Fishes that spoke about Community First! a sustainable community built for the homeless of Austin.
