Highland Park Elementary is a designated International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) school. Our students learn to think and act globally as they explore complex issues, take action to solve problems and reflect on what they’ve learned. We offer specialized coursework in Mandarin Chinese, art and physical education; we challenge students to explore science by asking questions and exploring problems. We also provide artist-in-residence programs to inspire students in the visual and performing arts. Other learning activities include band, choir, theater, dance, Lego League, Lego Robotics, running club, Destination Imagination, and special-interest teams and clubs. Our entire school staff takes pride in promoting the success of each student, and provides all students with opportunities to see themselves as members of a local, national, and global community.

Our School was authorized in 2003 as an official Primary Years Program (PYP) school by the International Baccalaureate Organization. We were the first school in the Midwest to receive this prestigious designation at the elementary level.
All students receive specialized coursework in Chinese, Science/Inquiry and Physical Education.
We’re proud to have an active Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) chapter, which supports our school in many ways – including fundraising, sponsoring a variety of events and supporting our curriculum with arts opportunities through residency programs, field trips and classroom activities.
