Welcome to Jenner Campus
Grades 5-8 & PreK (Head Start)
At Ogden, we realize that a child’s years from 5th to 8th grade are an important time for growth and self-discovery. It is a critical time when students develop their interests, learn new talents, and face challenges that are unique to their age group. As an International Baccalaureate school, once the students complete 5th grade (and complete their PYP Exhibition project), they move from the PYP to the MYP programme. The MYP is a challenging framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world. Student choice is critical at this time in a child's life and we celebrate it.
Students are encouraged to think independently and drive their own learning, take part in programs of education that can lead them to some of the highest ranking universities around the world. They become more culturally aware and through the development of a second language they are able to engage with people in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world.
