Bancroft Elementary provides students with a strong academic foundation as critical thinkers who choose and act responsibly with respect for self, community, and the environment.
Bancroft is an IB World School. The PYP is a world-renowned curriculum framework from the International Baccalaureate (IB) designed to encourage students to be active learners, well-rounded individuals and engaged world citizens. The Primary Years Programme targets learners in High 5 through 5th grade and aims to create a relevant, engaging, challenging and significant educational environment for all children!
