The International Baccalaureate and Ingenuity programs provide rigorous academic courses that prepare City school students to compete and thrive in high school, college and beyond.
The I.B. program in particular emphasizes service within the community; an integrated approach to the study of all core subjects, as well as arts, languages and physical education; and an exposure to cultures around the world that will help students compete in a globally connected economy.
Because of the I.B. and Ingenuity programs, Baltimore City families know they can obtain the highest quality secondary education for their children without having to consider moving to a private school, or moving out of the City entirely.
Mount Washington School provides the I.B. program to all students in the middle grades, across the academic spectrum. It launched the program in 2011 through a strong partnership with City Schools that relied on the district and the school community to share in the financial support of the program.
The Mount Washington community is grateful for the school system’s strong support for this high-quality educational program, and calls on the Board to maintain and strengthen that commitment.
We, the undersigned students, parents, staff and community supporters of the Mount Washington School, respectfully urge The Baltimore City Board of School Commissioners to vote against proposed cuts in funding for the International Baccalaureate and Ingenuity programs in Baltimore City schools.
The Oppose Academic Budget Cuts to Mount Washington School petition to Baltimore City Board of School Commissioners was written by David Conn and is in the category Local Government at GoPetition.
