IB Primary Years Programme (K–5)

International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (Grades K–5)
The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) curricular framework focuses on the development of the whole child in a learning environment that encourages independence, academic challenges, inquiry, creativity, and responsible citizenship. This Choice program offers a comprehensive, inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning in an internationally designed concept-based model with guidelines on student learning styles, methodologies and assessment strategies. The PYP is a combination of the best research and practices from international schools and includes the study of world languages and cultures to enhance the international perspective.
