Ypsilanti Community Schools is in the early planning stages to open an international elementary school in the district.


Officials say the school would complete the district’s global education pathway. YCS currently operates a middle school and high school which uses the international baccalaureate, or I-B, curriculum.

Maria Sheler-Edwards is on the Ypsilanti Community Schools Board of Education.

“Parents have been so pleased with those programs, we think they’ll want to start their children even earlier in an I-B education."

The Board will discuss the early planning stages of the school at a meeting tonight. It starts at 6:30 PM at the YCS Administration Building on Packard Road.
