Wedgewood Park International School was the first school in the State of Wisconsin to be authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization to offer the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme. Wedgewood Park has been authorized since February 2009. To be authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization, Wedgewood Park staff is required to be intensively trained in IB curriculum writing, assessment and methodology. A complex application process following a successful two-day authorization visit by International Baccalaureate representatives resulted in Wedgewood Park receiving this honor along with high future expectations with reauthorization visits occurring every five years.
All Wedgewood Park staff are passionate about every student receiving a high quality middle school education which is why the IB program is delivered with fidelity. Eight subject areas are required in every IB-middle years programme and Wedgewood Park students have a minimum of 50 hours per school year in Math, Language A (English/Spanish), Language B (Spanish), Humanities, Science, Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Technology, and Physical Education. Wedgewood Park has all of these offerings! We do not cut student educational programs due to financial constraints or budget shortfalls!
