    International Baccalaureate

    Primary Years Programme

    PYP is the official curriculum framework and teaching methodology of the International Baccalaureate Organization which was developed to meet theworld needs of children in the Primary Years (Pre-school - Grade5). It emphasizes learning through active inquiry and aims to develop the whole child to meet certain competencies and attitudes outlined in the student profile.
    PYP is an inquiry approach to learning which is rigorous, yet designed for all students.
    A strong emphasis is placed on the ideals of international understanding and responsible citizenship.
    Units of study are driven by a set of six conceptual questions based on the following universal organizing themes:
    Who we are
    Where we are in place and time
    How we express ourselves
    How the world works
    How we organize ourselves
    How we share our planet

    Our aim is to develop globally-minded citizens who are:

    Inquirers - curious and actively enjoy questioning the workings of the world
    Thinkers - able to problem solve and think critically
    Communicators - able to think and communicate in more than one way
    Caring - sensitive to the needs of others
    Principled - fair and honest
    Reflective - able to think about oneself and make constructive changes when needed
    Knowledgeable - able to explore and apply relevant and significant concepts
    Balanced - healthy and aware of good choices
