INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE® PRIMARY YEARS PROGRAM (PYP)

As an authorized International Baccalaureate World School, Mountain View Preparatory aligns the IB philosophy with Arizona State and Cottonwood Oak Creek District Standards. The IB philosophy is based on the IB Mission Statement and the Learner Profile.

The International Baccalaureate® Primary Years Program (PYP) is designed for students aged 3 to 12. It focuses on the total growth of the developing child, touching hearts as well as minds and encompassing social, physical, emotional and cultural needs in addition to academic development. At the heart of the program’s philosophy is a commitment to structured, purposeful inquiry as the leading vehicle for learning.

Our international focus teaches students about their own community and forges links to the world. The curriculum invites students to discover the interdependence of local, national and world cultures, builds an appreciation of diverse perspectives, and encourages active participation in our global society. Each child learns about the world through inquiry based on science and social studies, mathematics and language arts standards. These units encourage students to delve more deeply into transdisciplinary themes exploring: Who we Are; Where We Are in Place and Time; How We Express Ourselves; How the World Works; How We Organize Ourselves; and How We Share the Planet.
