The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) at Sawyer Road Elementary is an approach to teaching and learning that engages all students actively, while encouraging them to think deeply and take action in their own lives. Through our IB Programme, students at Sawyer Road become internationally-minded thinkers and inquirers who ask questions and seek answers with a global perspective. The IB program helps all students develop a love for learning by nurturing their natural curiosity.
IB learners strive to become inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective. These attributes represent a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that go beyond intellectual development and academic success.
