Sanford has been an authorized The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) since 2014. Through MYP, we provide academically rigorous instruction in all classes and supportive systems to help all students reach success. 

This MYP framework is

  • international-minded;
  • broad, balanced, conceptual and connected to the real world in authentic ways;
  • student-centered;
  • and project-based throughout our whole school.  

Students take courses in the 8 core subject areas of the MYP:  language and literature (ELA), individuals and societies (Social Studies), mathematics, sciences, physical and health education, language acquisition (Ojibwe, Spanish or English Learner services), arts (Visual Art, Drama & Band), and design (Media or PLTW Engineering).

To support our students in being successful in the MYP Programme, we offer a trauma-informed equitable approach to support services.  AVID is another school-wide program... School-based and Citywide Special Education programs.
