Request for IB Candidacy Granted!!!
Oscar DePriest Elementary is a candidate school* for the Middle Years Programme.
This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that
share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international
education that Oscar DePriest Elementary believes is important for our students.

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its three academic
programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme
(MYP), or the Diploma Programme (and in addition the IB Career-related Certificate).
Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
