George School is pleased to announce that Kim McGlynn has been named the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program Coordinator. Kim will lead the IB Diploma Program, ensuring that the program aligns with both IB standards and George School’s academic mission and curriculum. She will support and guide students and their parents through the rigorous program.
“I’m thrilled to accept this position, and excited for the academic year ahead,” said Kim.
Kim, who has taught English at George School since 2006, is deeply familiar with the George School community and can clearly see the overlap between George School’s values and those of the IB.
“There’s natural alignment between George School’s mission of developing ‘citizen scholars’ and the IB mission of fostering ‘intercultural understanding and respect.’ In fact, the latter promotes the former,” said Kim. “As an international boarding school founded on Quaker values, George School truly offers a ‘lived IB’ experience. Our school does not simply offer a global educational program; all George School students, whether IB or not, experience life in a global community and thereby learn to be inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people.”
Kim holds a BA from Oberlin College, as well as an MA in English literature and an MFA in fiction from Indiana University. During her tenure at George School, Kim has been a Price Chair holder and cross country coach. She and her husband, faculty member Aaron Good, enjoy spending time with their young son and reside on campus.
