What is the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme?
The elementary IB programme has been built on the idea that students
can master advanced academic skills if they learn to develop
strong study habits and a love of learning at an early age.
Learning in the elementary IB programme is focused on themes,
multicultural issues, mastery of essential skills and challenging work for all.
Students learn to be active citizens and study a foreign language
throughout the entire K-12 IB programme.
