Welcome to Mays, home of the Bulldogs!
My name is Principal Morris, and I wish to welcome you to Benjamin E. Mays IB World School. We are excited you have chosen to attend Mays.
While we do not know yet what the 2020-2021 school year will look like, we are working hard to prepar for every possibility. Whether we welcome you in person or online, we want you to know that the teachers and staff at Mays will be ready for you.
Please follow the links in the sidebar to visit your grade. There you will find information on teachers, schedules, and curriculum. In the PreK and Kindergarten sections you will also find resources to help in the important transition into school.
On the main page of the Classroom section (also linked in the sidebar) you will find information on Distance Learning at Mays. You can see our Distance Learning Schedule, and enjoy some of the partnership resources shared with families.
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!
