Primary Years Programme

Primary 1 to Grade 6

The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) is designed for students between the ages of 3 and 12 years. It encompasses learning not just in the classroom but also  through other means of learning within the whole community. The PYP is an international, transdisciplinary programme designed to foster the development of the whole child, touching hearts as well as minds and encompassing social, physical, emotional and cultural needs in addition to academic welfare. The PYP combines the best research and practice from a range of national systems with a wealth of knowledge and experience from international schools to create a relevant and engaging educational framework for all children.


Fundamental Concepts

At the heart of the Primary Years Programme’s philosophy is a commitment to structured inquiry as the leading vehicle for learning. Six transdisciplinary themes provide the framework for the exploration of knowledge. Teachers and students are guided by these themes as they design curricular units for exploration and study. As a result American Pacific International School has developed a comprehensive Programme of Inquiry.

Students explore subject areas through these themes, often in ways that transcend conventional subject boundaries. In the process, they develop an understanding of important concepts, acquire essential skills and knowledge, develop particular attitudes and learn to take socially responsible action. Within this transdisciplinary framework, American Pacific International School has developed individual subject standards and benchmarks to be incorporated both within the Programme of Inquiry and as standalone units of study.
