Principal's Message
 

Alicia Sanchez International School is a fully authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program School and a neighborhood school in the heart of Lafayette. As an IB World School, Sanchez International integrates BVSD curriculum, state standards and the IB program, providing a diverse student body with a rich learning experience focused on inquiry, student action and character education. Additionally, a foundational component of IB is teaching students to be responsible citizens through IB attitudes and service of others.

Staff, parents and students find Sanchez International to be a warm and welcoming learning environment yet also rigorous and engaging. While the School Accountability Report reflects a rating based on student achievement on the Colorado Student Assessment Program, the staff, parents and students rate Sanchez International much higher on local surveys in its ability to be responsive to its community. When the student achievement data is disaggregated to analyze cohort improvement, Sanchez International continuously demonstrates that it is closing the gap between both their minority students and English Language Learners and other student groups. According to the Colorado Longitudinal growth mode, Sanchez International students are demonstrating exceptional academic growth.

Sanchez International utilizes Positive Behavior Support and Restorative Justice to manage student behavior.  Additionally, service learning, citizenship development and recognition, numerous after-school activities, and a school-wide anti-bullying program are incorporated to provide a well-rounded educational experience for all students.
