Designed for children aged 3 to 11, the PYP is divided into the Early Years (Pre-K and K), and the Elementary School (grades 1-5). At ASW, each program focuses on enabling each child to excel both in the classroom and in the world around them.
In the PYP, students learn through a transdisciplinary approach. All students inquire into local and global issues framed by six themes: language, social studies, mathematics, science, arts and personal, social and physical education are integrated units of inquiry which allow students to understand that everything they learn is connected.
The PYP Exhibition is an event where students are have the opportunity to share their understanding of a real-world issue or topic they've chosen. Students put all the inquiry and research skills they've learned over in elementary school to use - it's like taking off on a bike without training wheels for the first time!
