Our teachers have developed and relfected on our IB PYP units of study known as "Planners". Each of these planners are developed around a Central Idea and Key Concepts. At the elementary level, the IB PYP also spends a lot of time and energy to help our students become Risk-Takers. We also encourage them to demonstrate empathy, integrity, confidence, curiosity, thoughtfulness, knowledge, and tolerance.
