International Baccalaureate Program

Conklin Elementary School will be the home of a new RPS 205 special program: International Baccalaureate.

RPS 205 will launch an International Baccalaureate (IB) Candidate School in the 2023-2024 school year at Conklin. The internationally recognized program is for children aged 3-19. RPS 205 will start with an elementary school and has plans to grow and expand.

Students in the IB Primary Years Programme will:

  • Take responsibility for their own learning.
  • Ask challenging questions, think critically and learn skills across all subject areas.
  • Are active in their communities and take their learning beyond the classroom.
  • Think globally, and develop respect for all cultures.
  • Learn another language. Conklin will include a Spanish component for all students and continue with its Spanish speaking (TBE) classrooms.


Fill Out an Interest Form

We welcome students within RPS 205 boundaries who are interested in an IB education. This program is for both students in bilingual (Spanish/TBE) and English speaking classrooms. The interest form will be available districtwide for the remainder of the school year/summer, provided seats are available. This is a limited opportunity for any districtwide student outside of the northwest quadrant.
