Estrella Foothills is an International Baccalaureate Candidate School

Estrella Foothills Global Academy is a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme and pursuing authorization as an IB World School. The Laveen District is collaborating with IB as we aim to provide a world class education that focuses on attributes that can help individuals and groups become responsible members of local, national, and global communities and help students to become lifelong learners.  As an IB Candidate School, our teachers are trained to provide an initial implementation of the Middle Years Programme. This means that students will be able to experience an IB education as we work alongside IB over the next few years to become a fully authorized International Baccalaureate World School.

*Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit
