Primary Years Program


Our 2018-2019 Program of Inquiry (POI) is available below along with our elementary school Assessment and Language Policies. The POI will be updated for the new school year every August.  The Assessment and Language Policies will be updated each fall.

Read more about what your child is learning in his/her classroom by reviewing the units in the Program of Inquiry.


Hugh Mercer Elementary School:

Lafayette Upper Elementary School:

Hugh Mercer Elementary School and Lafayette Upper Elementary School are candidate schools* for the PYP. Both schools are pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programs: the Primary Years Program (PYP), the Middle Years Program (MYP), the Diploma Program (DP), or the Career-related Program (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
