Liberty Magnet Elementary School

Liberty Magnet is an authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) Elementary School that focuses on the Primary Years Program. (PYP)  The PYP philosophy incorporates six global themes that are implemented throughout the year. These six themes make up the Program of Inquiry.  The six themes are; Who We Are, Where We Are in Place and Time, How We Express Ourselves, How the World Works, How We Organize Ourselves, and Sharing the Planet.  These themes are incorporated into a 4-6 week planner that each grade level comprises.  Each planner is very interactive and the children are assessed accordingly.  In addition to the planners, the learner profile is promoted throughout the entire school community.  The profile consists of character traits that enhance the production of a well balanced student.  The traits are; balanced, communicator, thinker, knowledgeable, caring, principled, inquirer, open minded, risk taker, and reflective.  We also teach the students Spanish as part of the IB requirement. The overall approach of the PYP is to focus on the development of the whole child, not only in the classroom but in the world itself.

The academic curriculum through the district focuses on using Harcourt/McMillan for Reading.  We have adopted a new reading series this year called “Storytown.”  We are very excited about implementing this new series.  The Science series is also from Harcourt. Liberty is using Scott Foresman with Investigations for Math and also for Social Studies.  Zaner Bloser is the handwriting series.
