Pembroke Pines (K-12) Campus - International Baccalaureate

Franklin Academy Pembroke Pines (6 – 12) is a candidate school* for the MYP and Diploma Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School.

IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.

* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.



“Break-Away “ is a student led initiative to address the division in today’s society by providing a safe place to talk about relevant events in hopes of “breaking away” from the barriers that surround students and in return creating a more tolerant and inclusive community. The topics discussed in the Break-Away sessions derive from the monthly “Global Citizen’s Project” lesson and corresponding inquiry question. The moderators are Model UN members and all participants are nominated by their Individual and Societies teacher.  

All aspects of “Break-Away” are done by students: questions, answers, recording, editing, creating of the introduction, logo, motto, and music selection.
