Mission Statement from the IB

The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

IB learners strive to become inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective. These attributes represent a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that go beyond intellectual development and academic success.

The Primary Years Programme: preparing students to be active participants in a lifelong journey of learning

The Primary Years Programme (PYP) is a curriculum framework for young learners aged 3-12 designed by the international Baccalaureate (IB). Founded on a philosophy that recognizes a child’s natural curiosity,creativity and ability to reflect, the PYP generates a stimulating, challenging learning environment to nurture those assets and foster a lifelong love of learning in every child. The PYP, like all IB programmes, is transdisciplinary, meaning students learn across subject areas while investigating big ideas

The IB Primary Years Programme

Addresses students’ academic, social and emotional well-being

Encourages students to develop independence and to take responsibility for their own learning

Supports student’s efforts to gain understanding of the world and to function comfortably within it

Helps students establish personal values as a foundation upon which international-mindedness will develop and flourish.

The six subject areas identified within the IB Primary Years Programme:




Social studies


Personal, social and physical education

The most significant and distinctive feature of the IB Primary Years Programme are the six transdisciplinary themes

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.

These themes provide the opportunity to incorporate local and global issues into the curriculum and effectively allow students to “step up” beyond the confines of learning within subject areas.

Since these ideas relate to the world beyond the school, students see their relevance and connect with it in an engaging and challenging way. Students who learn in this way begin to reflect on their roles and responsibilities as learners and become actively involved with their education.
