PB Middle IB students have been recognized for their outstanding service and action by the International Baccalaureate World Magazine online. Please see the students in action: “IB World Schools turn Egypt ‘green’ and San Diego ‘brown.” ow.ly/R5k0l. If tweeting, @IBWorldMag.
-Ni hao! PB Middle IB World School has been named a Confucius Institute Classroom School. Confucius classrooms are recognized for their innovation and commitment to Chinese language instruction worldwide. PB Middle IB World School will be one of the first in California to offer a Mandarin Chinese Language Immersion Program that also meets the requirements of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme.
In collaboration with the San Diego County Office of Education and the SDUSD Office of Language Acquisition, Pacific Beach Middle has designed a one-of-a-kind curriculum to welcome the first wave of IB Mandarin Chinese Language Immersion students into the new SDUSD IB MYP immersion program. The courses include IB MYP Language and Literature, IB Individuals and Society (social studies/humanities with a focus on IB arts) all taught (and performed) in Mandarin Chinese.
These language immersion students articulating from Barnard Asian Language Academy (Mission Bay Cluster) and Riverview Academy (Lakeside Unified) will be the first wave to lead the way through the Mission Bay Cluster’s Chinese Language Immersion Pathway. The committed students and families are already beginning to lay the groundwork for their next step with the immersion pathway that will then be offered at Mission Bay High in three years.
Students that are new to the Chinese language are able to enjoy the language focus by enrolling in three levels of Mandarin Chinese already taught and offered at PB Middle and Mission Bay High.
