At Young Elementary, an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, “Young” minds are developed to become thinkers and inquirers through the comprehensive, globally recognized IB Primary Years Programme (PYP).
Young became the first IB elementary school in Kentucky in 2010 and received successful evaluations from the IB and Magnet Schools of America during the 2013-14 school year.
Young’s schoolwide PYP is designed with the whole child in mind. It prepares twenty-first-century learners with the skills needed in an interconnected world by offering hands-on, relevant experiences. French instruction is provided in kindergarten through grade five.
The school also offers a range of student activities, including Zoo Crew, Student Council, Safety Patrol, Newsletter Club, basketball, soccer, volleyball, track, and cheerleading.
