MONTREAL, MAY 15, 2015 – Michelangelo International Elementary School (9360 5th Street) in Riviere des Prairies will be holding a 25th anniversary celebration on Sunday, May 24 (11:30 a.m.) followed by a community fair with games, music, and food trucks.

Michelangelo is a certified IB World school, authorized to teach the IB-Primary Years Programme. IB World Schools share a common philosophy; a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Michelangelo School believes is important for its students.

The school endeavours to successfully integrate students into present and future day life by providing the tools required to play a constructive role in society while developing positive values. The focus is not simply on the acquisition of knowledge, but on fostering in young people the desire to create a better and more peaceful world through respect and understanding of the many cultures of this world. The school provides students with the essentials of lifelong learning by creating environments that arouse intellectual curiosity. “When students leave Michelangelo, we expect them to have become inquirers, principled, balanced, caring, communicators, open-minded, risk-takers and reflective,” said Principal Anna Della Rocca.
