IB - Primary Years Programme

IB logo

Imagine a worldwide community of schools, educators, and students with a shared vision and mission to empower young people with the skills, values, and knowledge to create a better and more peaceful world.  This is the International Baccalaureate (IB).- “What is an IB Education?”

The IB offers three programmes, Diploma Programme (DP) for ages 16-19, Middle Years Programme (MYP) for ages 11-16, and the Primary Years Programme (PYP) for ages 3-12.

Under the PYP, offered at Roosevelt Elementary School, we focus on developing internationally minded students who will reflect on their own opinions and perspectives while respecting those of other human beings.  Students learn to develop a set of attributes, also known as the Learner Profile, throughout their IB education that teaches them to be compassionate and caring individuals.
