The Primary Years Programme (PYP) is a curricular framework that allows for the in depth study of big ideas over time. Student voice, choice and ownership are integral in the planning of our program. We hope that students will take action based on the discoveries they have made in their learning. The goal of the program is to develop all the attributes of the Learner Profile. You can learn about the PYP on the International Baccalaureate's website.

Learning-Focused
Students’ learning is framed by six units per year called the Program of Inquiry. Students and teachers learn through guided inquiry as they explore the central idea of each unit.

Leading
Students are actively involved in various stages of learning and are encouraged to be self-directed instead of passive receivers of knowledge.

Connected
Core subjects are integrated into the units as much as possible. Students make connections to their own lives, the community and the world through field trips, action projects, and ongoing reflection.
