We are proud to be an International Baccalaureate PYP Elementary School!!!
At the heart of the Primary Years Program's (PYP) philosophy is a commitment to structured inquiry as the leading vehicle for learning! Teachers and students are guided by six transdisciplinary themeas as they design curricular units for exploration and study. Students explore subject areas through these themes, often in ways that transcend conventional subject boundaries. In the process, they develop an understanding of:
Internationalism ~ Concepts ~ Skills ~ Attitudes ~ Action ~ Knowledge
The aim of all IB programs is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet help to create a better more peaceful world.
