Transdisciplinary Themes

Our PYP teachers have collaborated to create a Program of Inquiry that


includes six global themes. Teaching through these global themes allows our
students to make connections between their learning and creates an
internationally minded individual. Our teachers are mastered at blending the
state and national requirements for curriculum with the essential elements of
the IB program.
