IB Primary Years Programme

The IB Primary Years Programme is for students in elementary school. Currently, both Wheeling Elementary and Elkhart Elementary offer an authorized PYP. 

The Primary Years Programme focuses on the development of a student as a whole child and applies the following broad themes to learning content:

  • Who we are
  • Where we are in place and time
  • How we express ourselves
  • How the world works
  • How we organize ourselves
  • Sharing the planet

These six themes are designed to enhance learning in the traditional subject areas. They encourage students to view themselves as global citizens and create a transdisciplinary framework to encourage thinking that “goes beyond” the confines of the traditional, standards-based curriculum.

For more information, contact Wheeling at 303-344-8670 or Elkhart at 303-340-3050.

"Every day is a new adventure. There has not been one assignment that I didn't really get into and think about. I can tell that the teachers love to teach and the students love to learn." - Loretta Miller, IB student
