Randolph Elementary is a neighborhood school in the Douglas Park community that has implemented the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP IB). Randolph students represent 29 countries of origin and speak 19 languages. Virginia’s Standards of learning (SOLs) are taught through interdisciplinary units that emphasize critical thinking skills taught through inquiry. Randolph students participate in project-based learning and have a strong focus on IB Attitudes and Learner Profiles. Spanish language instruction is an integral component of the PYP IB.
The PYP IB program at Randolph teaches students a global perspective, as it emphasizes respect for others, allows for independent study and research, and fosters service. Through community engagement and service projects, Randolph students learn how to take action to make a positive difference in the world. Partnerships with A-SPAN, Meals-on-Wheels, and Brookdale Assisted Living provide consistent opportunities for students in all grade levels to participate in meaningful community service projects.
A robust academic program, supported by family and community involvement and coupled with cultural, artistic and athletic pursuits, nurtures the development of the whole child. Randolph believes that education is truly each student’s passport to the future.
