International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP)
Why an IB education is a cut above – in addition to following the Government of Alberta Program of Studies, as an accredited International Baccalaureate school, we offer a comprehensive and balanced curriculum that creates critical thinkers, as well as informed and compassionate participants in our global community. Inquiry-based learning gives our students an in-depth understanding of fundamental concepts that connect us throughout the world. How do we share the planet? How does the world work? Where are we in place and time? Our students understand how the information being taught is relevant to them and important to the world. Come in any time and visit our IB Programme of Inquiry wall!
The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. It is a concept-based curriculum framework defined by transdisciplinary themes of global significance, explored using knowledge and skills from the subject areas, with a powerful emphasis on inquiry-based learning.
