Description

The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme emphasizes academic challenges, international understanding, community service, and mental and physical well-being. The PYP programme seeks to develop the total child by addressing intellectual, social, physical, emotional and cultural needs. The curriculum framework includes five essential elements - concepts, actions, skills, knowledge, attitudes.

Farmington Woods Prospective International Baccalaureate Elementary School, through comprehensive and balanced curricula, will enable all members of the school community to reach their fullest potential as creative, compassionate, responsible, critical thinkers, and lifelong learners.







Curriculum: International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme

The Primary Years Programme seeks to develop the whole child to become a responsible member of a community. IB-trained teachers work together to create units of inquiry that inspire students to think about big ideas to promote international understanding and a global perspective. Owing to an emphasis on learning a world language, students begin a study of Spanish in kindergarten and use advanced technology to explore the world around them. Students work to answer questions such as: Who are we? Where are we in place and time? How do we express ourselves? How does the world work? How do we organize ourselves? How can we share the planet?

Important: Bus routes are subject to change based on actual student distribution, parent appeals, and other factors. The information here will be updated regularly, but updates may take several days to be reflected online. This route information last updated: 2:56 PM, Thu, Apr 3, 2014.

Stop times: Because routes change daily during the first weeks of school, specific stop times are not provided. Parents can anticipate a stop time based on the route start time, estimating 5 minutes between stops in suburban areas, and 5 to 10 minutes between stops in rural areas. The exact stop time will vary during the first weeks of school. Stop times may vary as much as 30 minutes as students settle into their routines. Students should be ready and waiting for the bus at least 10 minutes before the bus is expected to arrive.

Bus schedules: We urge parents to be patient as routes settle during the first few weeks of school. Bus routes may be extended by as much as 30 minutes as students become familiar with a new routine.

Questions?: Contact the Cary Transportation Office.
