International Baccalaurette Logo

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.

IB Transdisciplinary Themes & Program of Inquiry

6 hours ago

The IB Primary Years Program is distinguished by its inclusion of six transdisciplinary themes.

These themes provide IB World Schools with the opportunity to incorporate local and global issues across the curriculum. These in-depth inquiries relate to the world beyond the school and are relevant and engaging. Students who learn in this way begin to reflect on their roles and responsibilities as learners and become actively involved with their education. They are expected to work in a variety of ways, on their own and in groups, to allow them to learn to their best advantage. Each theme is addressed each year by all students, and units of study last for several weeks. (Students in Pre-Kindergarten engage with four of the themes each year.)
