In addition, we are excited to be a candidate for the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP) and are on track to become the first IBPYP in Boston (See IB tab for more details). There are many opportunities for parents to become involved, including joining the School Parent Council, School Site Council, or Josiah Quincy School Association.
