PYP (K-5)


The Primary Years Programme (PYP) nurtures and develops students in kindergarten through fifth grade as caring, creative and active participants in a lifelong journey of learning. The framework centers on students’ academic, social and emotional wellbeing, while focusing on international-mindedness and strong personal values. Students gain independent learning skills, and they are encouraged to take responsibility for their learning.

The programme incorporates local and global issues into the curriculum, asking students to look at six related, transdisciplinary themes and to consider the links between them. They include:

•  Who we are
•  Where we are in place and time
•  How we express ourselves
•  How the world works
•  How we organize ourselves
•  Sharing the planet
