Woodrow Wilson School- An IB World School

We are proud to be an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Progamme (IB PYP) World School. IB PYP schools share a common philosophy – a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education. Learning experiences focus on the development of the whole child as an inquirer and a life-long learner. We value international-mindedness and students strive to demonstrate the IB Learner Profile every day.

Do you know what it means that Woodrow Wilson School is an International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP) School??? Mrs Flugrad created this website to help parents, students, and teachers better understand why our school is special as part of a world-wide learning community of IB PYP Schools. There is a page about how to support IB Learning at home too!

How are you being Balanced at home?

"I am trying to be BALANCED at home by taking care of my brain and my body. I take care of my brain by reading books, taking online classes, and practicing Portuguese with the Duolingo app. I take care of my body by going on walks, playing with my cat Nala, and dancing with online Zumba classes." ~ Ms. Flugrad, IB PYP Coordinator

Bilingual fourth grader Bruno Rosa created a Minecraft city for Teachers Appreciation Week. In addition to being a principled and communicative student, Bruno is a true thinker. In his virtual city he created a replica of the Eiffel Tower, a museum, and a flowery path with caring messages at the end.

Bruno also is caring and reflective about how to take action to make a difference in the world. Read about how Bruno won $100 and decided to donate all of the money to different organizations in Framingham and in Brazil to help others!
