Primary Years Programme
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. 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.
Hayes Elementary, Stevenson Elementary and Fridley Preschool are authorized International Baccalaureate World Schools that offer the Primary Years Programme.
