What is International Baccalaureate?
The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB-PYP) - designed for students ages 3 to 12 - is an international program that focuses on the development of the whole child from an academic, social, physical, spiritual, emotional and cultural standpoint.
Core subjects are taught within a framework of ‘global significance’ to guide the learning process in a thematically organized curriculum that challenge students to think globally and ponder how they and others interact with and affect the world around them.
Students are encouraged to constantly inquire, investigate, and identify connections between subjects. The skills gained are designed to produce students who make informed choices, reflect on situations, and take responsible actions that will be helpful to themselves and others around them. Students continue the IB programme by entering Eastern High School.
