The PYP curriculum has an international perspective that recognizes and welcomes the diversity of student experiences and backgrounds. As a PYP school, ISB strives to develop internationally minded students who demonstrate the attributes of the IB learner profile.
Structured inquiry is the vehicle for learning, and we use an inquiry-based approach where our teaching methods build upon individual understandings, knowledge and interests. In developing critical thinking skills students inquire into how to learn and how to delve deeper. The Units of Inquiry make up the Programme of Inquiry.
These units are developed under the IB’s Transdisciplinary Themes, making learning for understanding more effective. Each Unit of Inquiry allows the students to explore Key Concepts, including:
- Form: ‘What is it like?’
- Function: ‘How does it work?’
- Reflection: ‘How do we know?’
