Primary Years Program (PYP)PYP is the official curriculum framework and teaching methodology of the International Baccalaureate Organization which was developed to meet the needs of children in the Primary Years (Pre-school - Grade 5). 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.
Since 2003 in Upper St. Clair School District, Streams Elementary School has been proud to be an authorized International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program school. Beginning in the school year 2014-2015, all students who attend Streams School, grades K-4, participate in this program.Students from Baker and Eisenhower are transported to Streams to participate in this program, space permitting.
