Benefits of the PYP

The PYP benefits both learners and educators, and strengthens learning and international mindedness throughout the entire school community.

The PYP for Students

In the PYP, students learn how to think for themselves and take responsibility for their own learning through an inquiry-led approach.

By developing the attributes of the IB learner profile, students also learn how to demonstrate respect for themselves and others, developing international-mindedness by working with others for a shared purpose and taking positive action for change


The PYP for teachers

PYP practitioners are among the most passionate and dedicated educators in the world; supported by transformative professional development experiences that allow them to do the same for students.

PD opportunities for non-IB educators


The PYP for the school community

In the PYP, parents and the wider school community are also considered learners and valued as essential partners in students’ learning.


Quality assurance

Becoming an IB World School takes dedication and commitment on the part of the school, parents, and learning community to meet rigorous quality assurance requirements. Once authorization is confirmed, a regular cycle of support and evaluation ensures the highest quality assurance.
