Our Mission

Young Elementary strives to develop internationally-minded students in pursuit of knowledge as they assume responsibility in shaping their community.

Welcome to Our Site

Young Elementary World School is Kentucky's first authorized primary school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme. We earned this prestigious recognition in December 2010.

The IB is a nonprofit educational foundation focused on the whole child. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education- that Young believes is important to our students. The Primary Years Programme prepares students by developing skills and constructing knowledge needed in the 21st century. Our aim is to provide students learning for life and to help them become global citizens.

Only schools authorized by the IB can offer any of its three academic programs; the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme. To learn more, go to
