Q6. What curriculum is followed at the Primary level?
Answer: The school is authorised to offer the IB PYP Program. IB is the abbreviation for International Baccalaureate. The PYP (Primary Years Program) is an internationally-recognised school programme for Kindergarten to Class 5. The IB programme was founded in 1968 by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO), a non-profit educational organisation based in Geneva, Switzerland.
The IB programme is practical and application-based. It has a broader spectrum of subjects that lead to all-round development.Curriculum in IB is designed in a way to develop all round skills of the students
IB examinations test students' knowledge, not their memory and speed. There are no formal examinations. The focus of the IB pedagogy is on 'how to learn' rather than 'what to learn'.
There are also no prescribed textbooks, the purpose of IB is to produce global citizens.
The IB curriculum equips students with the tools needed to succeed in higher education, such as self-confidence, preparedness, research skills, organisational skills and being actively engaged in own learning.
Traditional learning focuses upon rote-learning. There is very little application to whatever content you study. Moreover, it only focuses upon academics, and not the overall development of a student.
