Primary Years Program (PYP)
Beacon adopts the Primary Years Program of the International Baccalaureate Organization (PYP-IB) for Early Childhood Education and years 1 to 5 of the Elementary School.
Knowledge is a process of collective construction. As students gain knowledge, it is essential that they understand the historical and social context in which they live, and become aware of the challenges they face to understand and solve issues related to our status as "human beings" together with others.
The PYP curriculum is based on five essential elements: knowledge, concepts, skills, attitudes and action.
