Elementary Primary Years Programme (PYP)

The primary goal of the PYP is to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help create a better and more peaceful world through their actions. PYP provides a framework for organizing curriculum and delivering instruction. It is not a curriculum the district has purchased to implement, rather it is a framework into which we fit our curriculum and the Utah State Standards. All grade levels focus their curriculum around the same six themes of global significance. These themes are intended to help children engage with their world and the world around them. In this program, students inquire, make connections, develop conceptual understanding, think critically, work collaboratively, consider multiple perspectives, construct meaning, reflect, and take action.  For more information please use the following link IBO PYP Programme
