About us

Global Community Charter School (GCCS) is proud to be an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, which authorizes us to offer the prestigious Primary Years Program (PYP) to our students. The Primary Years Program is for children aged 3 - 12 and nurtures and develops young students as caring, active participants in a lifelong journey of learning. The PYP framework is a fantastic tool for integrating project-based learning, critical thinking, and complex problem solving across our curriculum.

“GCCS is a place where everybody feels like they are at home. Leaders, families and students are in constant communication about the academic and social-emotional success of the children. The barrier between school and home is a blurred line - which is an amazing thing…!”
