Five Essential Elements
There are five key components to the IB/PYP curriculum: Attitudes, Knowledge, Key Concepts, Skills, and Action.
There are twelve attitudes we want students to value and exhibit. They are interwoven throughout every aspect of the curriculum.
There are six transdisciplinary themes students will investigate throughout the school year. These themes are globally significant and cover concepts that are interconnected, can be addressed in all disciplines (subjects), and can be applied to real life.
There are eight key concepts that drive instructions through inquiry, questions, and investigation.
There are five transdisciplinary skills students develop as they involve themselves in the learning environment.
Students are encouraged to reflect, to make informed choices and to take action that will help their peers, school staff, and the wider community.
These are student initiated responses to what they are understanding and learning about themselves and the world in which they live.
