Welcome to Burton Magnet Elementary School! We are an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. Students at Burton are engaged through a method of instruction that features key questions, reflection and action learning. The Primary Years Programme focues on the development of the whole child and offers a framework to meet students' academic, social, physical, emotional and cultural needs. At Burton students develop a broad perspective of the world and a better understanding of their immediate environment through daily instruction in foreign language, global study of geography and current events, a student broadcast center and community service. Please click here to learn more about the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme offered at Burton.
