    Pinkerton Elementary

    An International Baccalaureate World School


    Welcome to Pinkerton! Thank you for visiting our website!

    This year Pinkerton Elementary is a candidate school* for the Primary Years Program. We are pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy--- a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Pinkerton believes is important for our learners.


    *Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate (IB) as IB World Schools can offer any of its three academic programs: the IB Primary Years Program (PYP), the IB Middle Years Program (MYP), or the IB Diploma Program. Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.


    For further information about the IB and its programs, visit


    We are excited to begin the 2014-2015 school year as the first Choice School in Coppell ISD. We are happy to welcome over 130 new learners and their families from all over the district to our Pinkerton family. We know that you will feel at home in the warm, caring and supportive family environment that makes Pinkerton unique.


    We encourage you to become a partner in your child’s education by following the classroom teacher on Twitter, engaging in conversations nightly with your children about what they are learning in school, and keeping up with the classroom websites and digital portfolios where learners will document their learning throughout the year.

    I look forward to meeting you and working with you this year! Here’s to a great year!
