Glenridge Middle School

an International Baccalaureate World School



The International Baccalaureate (IB), founded in 1968, is an international educational framework focused on developing life-long learners with 21st century skills in over 1 million students in 152 countries.  IB offers four programmes for students in kindergarten through twelfth grade.  Glenridge Middle School is authorized to teach the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) to all students in grades 6-8.   

Glenridge underwent an extensive authorization process from 2001-2004 to become an IB World School.  Glenridge was the first MYP school authorized in Orange County and is currently one of 65 MYP programmes in the State of Florida.  Glenridge is not a magnet, we proudly offer the MYP to all students zoned for our school.  To ensure the integrity of its programmes, the IB re-evaluates its programmes every five years to ensure commitment to the IB mission and philosophy. Our last evaluation was in the Spring of 2018.


Our teachers are constantly enhancing their knowledge and expertise of the MYP through a variety of professional development on campus and in collaborative workshops with other teachers from across the United States and World.
