Wharton proudly offers every Pre-K through 5th-grade student an International Baccalaureate (IB) education. Our IB program is funded by parent contributions to the PTO through ¡Juntos!, and we need your support to sustain our IB Primary Years Program (PYP).


Donate to ¡Juntos! for Wharton's IB Program

We encourage you to set up a recurring monthly donation to help sustain Wharton's IB program.




¡Juntos, we can do it! Thank you for your generosity!


Why IB?

Simply put, the IB program is engaging, challenging and relevant. Through inquiry-based learning the IB PYP creates independent thinkers who are caring, active participants in a lifelong journey of learning. Learn more at www.ibo.org
