Origins of the Beverly Hills-Morgan Park-MYP Cluster
In 1997 the Beverly Area Planning Association was awarded a grant from the Annenberg Foundation to improve student achievement. A cluster of Five elementary schools and one high school was formed to implement the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme. This dynamic and challenging program links the elementary schools and the local high school.
