Welcome to Mays, home of the Bulldogs!
Welcome to Benjamin E. Mays IB World School. We are excited you have chosen to attend Mays.
We will start the school year in a Distance Learning environment. Teachers and staff at Mays continue to prepare and plan new ways to engage our students in an online setting. The district has created a Student and Family Fall Checklist to help families preprare. We look forward to the start of school which will kick-off with our Meet & Greet on Thursday, September 3, 6:00-8:00pm.
Please follow the links in the sidebar to visit your grade. There you will find information on teachers and curriculum. In the PreK and Kindergarten sections you will also find resources to help in the important transition into school.
Across all grades during the 2020-2021 school year, we will be focused on Student Voice, which is:
- including the opinions, beliefs, perspectives, and cultural backgrounds of students to increase their sense of agency and ownership.
- engaging students in learning experiences that encourage class discussion and academic discourse.
- supporting students in becoming more independent learners through productive struggle and an increased sense of self-efficacy.
Our school-wide approach to Student Voice includes our commitment to Restorative Practices, inquiry-based learning (IB), increased opportunities for students to explain and justify their thinking, and culturally responsive instruction grounded in relevance, relationships, and rigor.
Welcome to Benjamin E. Mays IB World School. Have a great summer and we’ll see you soon!
