Richardson Middle now an International Baccalaureate school

The El Paso Independent School District will offer middle-school students from throughout the county one more option to get a world-class education.

Richardson Middle School this week become EPISD’s third campus to offer the exclusive and highly-competitive International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme.

The school was notified of its acceptance into the program following a rigorous application process.

“We are delighted to continue our expansion of IB programming throughout EPISD. The Richardson program will create a pipeline of highly-motivated students into the emerging IB program at Andress High School,” said Superintendent Juan E. Cabrera.

“This middle-to-high school pathway for IB gives students on both sides of the mountain access to this internationally-recognized curriculum and sets our students to be successful in their academic career,” he added.

Richardson joins Lincoln and Morehead middle schools, who last year became the first schools to offer the IB Middle Years Programme in the county.

Two high schools offer the IB Diploma Programme: Andress and Coronado, which was the first school in El Paso to have this program more than 20 years ago.

The IB Middle Years Programme requires students to receive high-rigor instruction on eight subjects, including: language acquisition, literature, social studies, science, math, art, physical education and critical thinking/design.

Students in the program also must engage in a collaborative project involving two subject areas and complete a long-term project that includes their chosen field of study.
