International Baccalaureate


Briscoe Elementary is an authorized IB World School implementing the Primary Years Programme. IB World Schools are schools that share a common commitment to a high quality, challenging, international education. At Briscoe Elementary, we commit to the development of internationally-minded learners by meeting the diverse needs of our learning community. We accomplish this through a rigorous, nurturing learning environment, high-quality instruction, and individual support that enable all students to reach their full potential.


IB Mission Statement
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to 
create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.

These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.


Dear Parents and Guardians,

Jennifer Emerson

On behalf of the staff at Briscoe Elementary, we are excited to welcome you to the          2021-2022 school year! I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am excited to be the new principal of Briscoe Elementary. I have been the Assistant Principal at Briscoe for the last two years. In those two years, I have been able to develop relationships with our students, staff, parents, and community members. I am honored to continue serving our Briscoe community.

I have always held Briscoe Elementary very near and dear to my heart. The start of my teaching career began at Briscoe. Eleven years ago, I was a student teacher at Briscoe, and now, I feel like I have come full circle. Over the last ten years, I have taught at Woodlawn Academy and Pershing Elementary.

When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with husband Joseph. I am the proud mother of two children, Elizabeth and Matthew. I also have three wonderful grandchildren: Jacob, Emma, and Charlotte. I enjoy reading, going for walks with my family, and crocheting.

My intentions for this school year are to ensure that everything we do at Briscoe supports students, families, and the community. We are building a community of leaders, and in doing so, we hope to empower our students to take action and become responsible global citizens.

I look forward to working with all of our students, families, community, and staff. Together, we will make an IMPACT! Please feel free to reach out to me at any time.
