The International Baccalaureate, or IB, is an internationally recognized teaching and learning program that engages students to become leaders of their own learning. The PYP will benefit ALL students and focuses on developing the whole child inside and outside of the classroom. Building on the GEE curriculum, teaching and learning will become more student-led and inquiry-driven.
Subjects will be connected through inquiries into broad themes such as Who We Are, Where We Are in Time and Place, How the World Works, How We Express Ourselves, How We Organize Ourselves, and Sharing the Planet. Students build character through the emphasis on the Learner Profile which is a set of attributes that define the type of learner IB students aim to become. The profile combines knowledge, skills, creativity, and critical thinking to educate the whole child and prepare them to be active and responsible global citizens.
