Welcome to the September 2009 IB Americas eNewsletter


Dear Educators,

Welcome to the second edition of the IB Americas enewsletter.

For the September issue, we reached out to IB coordinators and teachers in the region for their contributions. The powerful insights they provide in the following articles serve as a window into the unique ideas, the unending passion and innovative approaches happening daily in local communities throughout the Americas that offer an IB education to their students. 

From a newly authorized Primary Years Programme school in Ecuador to the story of two IB World Schools in the United States and Colombia offering the Middle Years Programme— linked by their commitment to the Amazon ecosystem—we hear firsthand of the challenges and opportunities in expanding the global view of their students and the educational experience in their schools. We also embark on the implementation journey of a rural school in Canada adopting the Diploma Programme.

I hope you find these articles informative and helpful. Please do not hesitate to share your feedback, thoughts and ideas with me directly at

Thank you for your continued dedication to providing an IB education to your students.

Kind Regards,

Drew Deutsch
