8th Grade Community Projects – Postponed

The 8th Grade MYP presentations will be re-scheduled once we return to school on April 7th.

Eighth graders should continue to work on their projects during the extended Spring Break.


As an IB capstone project for our 8th graders, our 8th Grade Community Project challenges 8th graders to identify a community need, work to address that need, and then present their project to parents and teachers.

Please check out some of the 2019-2020 MYP Projects to see how you can help!

6th Grade Drama Production – James and The Giant Peach Jr.

Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach JR. is a brand new take on this “masterpeach” of a tale. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is destined to be a classic.

The show runs March 10th -12th and 17th-19th at 6:00pm each night. Click here for the show schedule.

Tickets can be purchased in advance on MySchoolBucks or at the door each night.

School Tours & Open House

School Tours

McAuliffe will offer School Tours for parents and their current 5th grade student on most Friday mornings from October 4th, 2019 through February 14th, 2020.  These tours will run from 8:40am-9:40am. Due to the enrollment demand and the increasing student population in the boundary, we ask that ONLY current residents of the Greater Park Hill / Stapleton shared middle school enrollment boundary or those intending to move to our boundary area register for the School Tours. We will limit each School Tour to 42 families a day to reduce the impact on our teachers and students. Please do not bring younger siblings on the School Tour. Please sign-up for school tours here.

**McAuliffe International does not do student-shadowing**

McAuliffe International School is pleased to offer an Open House on Thursday, December 12th from 7:00-8:00pm for families to learn more about our school.
