An Engaging, International Curriculum

Glendale International School (GIP), an IB PYP World School follows a curriculum that is engaging, relevant, challenging & significant for learners.  Our curriculum aims at developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who will help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding, respect and international mindedness.

What is the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP)?
The PYP aims to create a curriculum that is engaging, relevant, challenging and significant for learners in the 3–12 age range. It is trans disciplinary and focuses on issues that go across subject areas. The curriculum framework lays emphasis on the essential elements — knowledge, concepts, skills, attitudes and action that young students need to equip them for successful lives, both now and in the future.

6 trans disciplinary themes of global significance are explored using knowledge and skills derived from six subjects areas and trans disciplinary skills with emphasis on inquiry. The PYP is flexible enough to accommodate the demands of most national or local curriculum's.
