Synopsis

The IB Middle Years Programme for students aged 11 to 16 provides a framework of academic challenge that encourages students to embrace and understand the connections between traditional subjects and the real world, and become critical and reflective thinkers. The programme encourages international mindedness and a positive attitude to learning. The IB Primary Years Progrmme for students aged 3 to 12, focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside through a transdisciplinary framework . It emphasizes, through the Learner Profile the development of the whole student – physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically. The California Association of IB World Schools is authorized by the IB to offer MYP/PYP teacher training workshops. These are led by experienced workshop leaders committed to providing IB teachers with a set of skills, attitudes and perspectives which help them decide how best to teach and how best to assess student learning.
