Smyth IB World School is a neighborhood magnet school primarily serving the University Village community. Through International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), we have both Primary Years Programme (PYP) for PreK-5th grades and Middle Years Programme (MYP) for 6th-8th grades. Our focus is social justice helping students understand their role and significance in their community, city, country, and the world.
We are implementing Personalized Learning in all classrooms, which supports student ownership of their learning by honoring students' voice and choice. All students have access to technology throughout the day to support academic achievement and close the digital divide.
University of Illinois School of Education and Health Wellness Department , Pilot Light, Gardeneers, and Ravinia are a few of our community partners with programs embedded in our school day to enhance student growth.
