As an IB World School for Primary Years Programme (PYP), we offer high-quality, international education for our students. By choosing to implement the PYP, we are developing students’ academic, social and emotional wellbeing, focusing on international-mindedness and strong personal values. The PYP nurtures independent learning skills, encouraging every student to take responsibility for their learning.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) is the most respected and widely followed academic program in the international schools with more than 5,000 schools worldwide offering IB programs. The IB promotes intercultural understanding and respect, not as an alternative to a sense of cultural and national identity, but as an essential part of life in the 21st century.
