The gym, similarly, is also on target for completion by mid-July. >>read more

Uptown School is an authorized International Baccalureate (IB) Primary Years School and PYP IB World School. Uptown School is a candidate school* for the IB Middle Years Programme and is pursuing authorization as an MYP IB World School.
IB World Schools are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education—that Uptown School believes is important for our students.
