Primary Year Program

Elementary students’ learning is framed by six themes: who we are, where we are in place and time, how we express ourselves, how the world works, how we organize ourselves, and sharing the planet. These six units are transdisciplinary, meaning that they connect the curriculum, linking math, language arts, science, social studies, art, and even PE, together into a cohesive unit.

Middle Year Program

The middle school curriculum offered through the IB Middle Years Program is balanced and broad, meaning that it incorporates a wide range of curricular areas. At Hankey students in grades 6th-8th take eight subject areas (two more than the district norm); one period of Language Acquisition (Spanish)  and Physical and Health Education (PE) every other week, 15 hours of fine arts instruction each year in addition to instrumental music or music appreciation; and design, a problem-based curriculum unique to IB teaching students application of the design cycle and developing solutions for problems encountered in their world.

Around Campus

Small school. Big difference.

Tucked comfortably between homes, a ribbon of green belt and the sprawling verdant field of an adjacent park, Carl Hankey K-8 school, located in the Capistrano Unified School District, is closely connected to its local community. This tight link was forged at the school’s inception; opening in 1978 it was named for Carl Hankey, a prominent rancher and school board member who played a pivotal role in early local land development. Influenced by its changing community, Hankey has withstood two major transformations, evolving from a K-5 to a K-8, and then embarking on the journey to become an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School.  Despite these modifications, the school continues to retain its warm, neighborhood atmosphere, and the deeply rooted sense of community that makes it so special.
