We are an International Baccalaureate Magnet school. Our student population is comprised from both the neighborhood and the CMS Magnet Lottery. For more information regarding the magnet lottery and important enrollment dates, visit the CMS Magnet Programs website. Visit the Lansdowne IB World School Website here.
Lansdowne's Mission: Our mission is to hold high expectations for academic performance and character development for each student in a safe, caring environment that embraces cultural diversity. We will do this by implementing the International Baccalaureate Program (PYP) and thereby empowering our students to become critical, independent thinkers with the skills to be active participants in an ever-changing global society.
A Letter from our President
My name is Amy McHugh and I am proud to serve as your PTO president for the 2022-23 school year. My husband and I have two boys - a first grader at Lansdowne and a four year old.
Your PTO jumped right in to support our staff and students prior to the start of school hosting Popsicles at the Playground for incoming K families, ordering Recess Kits for our students to use on the grassy areas(!) and bus parking lot, distributing checks to classroom teachers for classroom start up funds, and welcoming families and selling spirit wear at Open House.
The PTO serves to support our hardworking Lansdowne staff, enhance our children’s educational experience and to build a strong community with our Lansdowne families.
After so much distance the past two years it is important to me that we foster our family connections through community building events. Thank you to the many parents who joined PTO, volunteered time, or sent in donations to support our staff and students. I was overwhelmed and excited with the attendance at our Fall Festival and look forward to seeing and meeting many more joyful faces as we move through the school year.
It’s a great year to be a Lansdowne Lion! Amy McHugh, PTO President
