• IB Attitudes

    The IB-PYP Attitudes are a vital focus in the development of positive attitudes towards people, the environment, and learning. These are the day to day attitudes we use. These IB-PYP Attitudes are meant to be an explicit part of daily learning, modeled by both students and staff. They are woven into daily school life - the classroom, the cafeteria, at recess, etc. Students also reflect on the attitudes during learning experiences and assessments. When reinforced at home, these attitudes become second nature for children.
