Welcome to Eakin Elementary. We are an International Baccalaureate World School dedicated to preparing students to interact and impact globally. We believe that we can create a better world through integrated collaborative teaching and learning. As a community of learners, we understand that knowledge is most effective when it improves the lives of those around us.

As an IB World School, we integrate academic content and a comprehensive program of related arts that includes Spanish, art, music, and physical education. Each day students learn to apply previous learning across the curriculum to make powerful connections to address current local, domestic, and international matters.

Located in the heart of Hillsboro Village, we partner with area businesses, universities, community members, and families to ensure all students learn at high levels. Equipped with effective social emotional and problem solving skills, we know the next great leaders and innovators walk through the doors of Eakin every morning.
