Description

The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) emphasizes academic challenges, international understanding, community service, and mental and physical well-being. The PYP 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 and attitudes.

All stakeholders embody our mission of being, "A family of lifelong learners committed to developing international citizens and academic excellence through inquiry." At Millbrook, we know that learning may begin in books, but it continues to the edge of a child's imagination. If your child is asking big questions that demand complex answers, the PYP supports your inquirer. Students gain the confidence to act and to discover how their actions can make a difference.

The staff, students and community all share the common goal of sustaining the high expectations of being an authorized PYP World School. Millbrook Elementary Magnet School embraces cultural understanding and diversity in order to give our students a global perspective.








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?
