As of September 1, 2015, Hammond Eastside Elementary Magnet School is a candidate school* for the Middle Years Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Hammond Eastside Elementary Magnet School believes is important for our students.
*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme and the IB CP. Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit http://www.ibo.org
Darlene Hammer, acting Principal, was informed of this excellent news on Wednesday, May 6, 2015 by the IBO and is extremely pleased to officially begin our MYP endeavors.

We commend Hammond Eastside’s educators, students, families, and community members for their active roles in helping our school become an authorized IB World School, Primary Years Programme (PYP). As an IB World School, we are part of a global community of schools committed to developing knowledgeable, caring young people who will be ready to negotiate their futures successfully and make contributions resulting in a more harmonious and peaceful world. The positive results of the PYP will become evident in our Hammond community as classes of PYP students graduate and undertake activities that enhance social, cultural and economic environments locally, nationally and, perhaps, internationally.
