Safety Harbor Middle School is officially an International Baccalaureate Middle Year Programme

June 11, 2024

Safety Harbor Middle has been authorized as a Middle Years Programme IB World School. The authorization follows a virtual verification review a few weeks ago.

The Middle Years Programme is a framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world. The framework is grounded in authentic, student-centered learning that empowers students to be curious about their world and solve problems around them. 

Safety Harbor Middle is the district's first North County IB MYP, joining MYPs at James B. Sanderlin and Largo Middle IB World Schools. Learn more about MYPs at
