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?
