Sergeant Elementary School has now finished the process to become an IB Primary Years Program (PYP) School. For more information please visit their website HERE or contact the IB Coordinator- Regina DeArcos email@example.com
The program incorporates local and global issues into the curriculum, asking students to look at six related, transdisciplinary themes and to consider the links between them. The themes include ‘who we are’, ‘where we are in place and time’ and ‘how the world works’.
The PYP curriculum provides schools with a curriculum framework of five essential elements- knowledge, concepts, skills, attitudes, and action that young students need to equip them for successful lives, both now and in the future.
Schools work with the elements to construct a rigorous and challenging primary curriculum for international education.
The PYP aims to create a curriculum that is engaging, relevant, challenging and significant for learners in the 3–12 age range. The curriculum is transdisciplinary, meaning that it focuses on issues that go across subject areas.
W.T. Eich Middle School is now an IB Middle Years Program (MYP). We are excited to welcome them to the IB continuum of learning. To read more about Eich Middle School IB, see their website HERE and IB info page HERE or contact the IB Coordinator- Lisa Shrider firstname.lastname@example.org
The MYP is a five-year program, which can be implemented in a partnership between schools, or in several abbreviated (two, three or four year) formats. The challenging framework encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world.
The MYP aims to develop active learners and internationally minded young people who can empathize with others and pursue lives of purpose and meaning. It empowers students to inquire into a wide range of issues and ideas of significance locally, nationally and globally. The result is young people who are creative, critical and reflective thinkers.
The MYP curriculum provides a broad and balanced education for early adolescents comprising of eight subject groups.
- Language acquisition
- Language and literature
- Individuals and societies
- Physical and health education
The MYP requires at least 50 hours of teaching time for each subject group in each year of the program. In years 4 and 5, students have the option to take courses from six of the eight subject groups within certain limits, to provide greater flexibility in meeting local requirements and individual student learning needs.
