International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (PYP) for Kinder and 1st Grade
The AEBS IB learner profile is a set of learning outcomes for the 21st century and provides a long-term vision of education. It is a set of ideals that can inspire, motivate and focus the work of our school and our AEBS community (students, parents and teachers), as a common purpose.
The vision of our curriculum is the integration of as many disciplines as possible into the trans-disciplinary theme. The curriculum overlaps in the three main areas of instruction, literacy, numeracy and the program of inquiry. The greater the overlap with contextual learning, the greater the ability of the learner to make sense of the studies.
Our school provides a low student-to-teacher ratio providing the benefits of child-focused learning highly interactive and at your child’s pace versus the pace of a larger classroom.
Our students from preschool thought 1st Grade will explore six units of inquiry. Each unit has a science and/or social studies focus with language, arts and math infused throughout.
