    International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) at Sawyer Road Elementary educates the whole child by providing a comprehensive, inquiry based approach to teaching and learning. While incorporating local, state, and national curriculum requirements as well as the arts and world language, the PYP reaches beyond minimum standards to provide a rich, intensive education. All of the students at Sawyer Road Elementary receive IB PYP instruction.

    Through IB, our students become internationally-minded thinkers and inquirers who ask questions and seek answers with a global perspective. IB helps all students develop a love for learning by nurturing their natural curiosity.

    As IB learners, we strive to be: inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective. These IB learner profiles represents 10 attributes valued by IB World Schools.
