Welcome to Daniel Axford Elementary
International Baccalaureate World School
It is with a great sense of pride that we are pleased to announce Daniel Axford Elementary is now an IB world school!!
Three years ago, our school joined all of the schools in Oxford on a journey to become an International Baccalaureate World School. This is not a task that is easily accomplished. There have been many hours of hard work by every person that makes up our DA family: teachers, administrators, support staff, parents, and most importantly our students! Students have been on a journey to learn about IB learner profiles, attitudes, and what it means to be internationally minded. A transformation has been taking place and now we announce to you that it has ALL paid off.
We were informed in December of 2012 by the International Baccalaureate World Office that our school has become a fully authorized International Baccalaureate World School!! This is great news!
What does it mean for DA? It very simply means that we continue the superior academic instruction that we teach every day; we continue supporting our teachers with access to the very best training that the International Baccalaureate World curriculum offers; and our students will now be recognized in the education world as students who are being exposed to the high quality standards and rigor for which the International Baccalaureate is known. What is different is that it is now all official. We are now officially authorized and recognized by International Baccalaureate World Schools. Please take a few moments to explore the International Baccalaureate website to get a deeper understanding of IB at http://www.ibo.org
