At Briscoe Elementary School, we believe it is necessary to provide students with the tools and opportunities to take ownership of their learning and be contributors to the community and the world. It is imperative to develop intellectual thinkers who are academically successful and internationally minded. We provide students with authentic learning experiences that challenge students to become thinkers, inquirers, and reflective. As an IB World School for the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Briscoe prepares students seeking an International Baccalaureate education from elementary through high school. Following Briscoe, students may continue an IB education at Harris Middle School and Burbank High School.
