What Makes Us Different?

DEA celebrates its past while also building a bright future. When students are enrolled in our PYP programme they are automatically enrolled in the MYP programme at Dundee Ridge Middle Academy for a seamless K-8 IB programme. In 8th grade, students take a placement test to continue their IB experience at Haines City High School.

Our school joined the family of over 6,000 IB world schools and became an authorized Primary Years Programme in 2018. Each year we celebrate International Peace Day, International night where we travel to each continent, and fine arts night. In addition, each grade level has its own IB showcase night. Each kindergarten student builds a special place that together creates a model town. First-grade students create a monument to share. Each second-grade class selects a Native American Region and each student creates a display for families to travel through leading to the cave of their artwork. Third grade expresses themselves through poetry and art. Fourth-grade students each select an inventor for the wax museum event. Fifth-grade students share their final exhibition projects.
