Life in the 21st century places many changing demands on students making the transition through adolescence. They are at a crucial period of personal, social, physical, and intellectual development, uncertainty, and questioning. The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Primary Years Programme is designed to help them find a sense of belonging in the ever-changing and increasingly interrelated world around them and to foster a positive attitude to learning.
Since February 11, 2013 Carlyle Elementary School has been authorized to teach the International Baccalaureate - Primary Years Programme (PYP). There are 6 units of inquiry being taught from kindergarten to grade 6 and 4 units of inquiry for pre-kindergarten. The IB attitudes and the IB Learner Profiles are demonstrated daily.
As a parent, you can support the IB-PYP and your child's learning by:
- Know the unit theme and central idea
- Discussing and encouraging your child’s ideas which can arise during a unit of study
- Discuss and encourage your child’s ideas arising from inquiry topics
- Encouraging your child to take ACTION
