What is IB?

In international education we are guided by 3 level of relationships:How human beings relate to each otherHow they relate to a cultureHow they relate to their shared humanity.

It is making sense of these relationships, the personal, the cultural and the universal, that is the challenge to international education.-George Walker, 2003The Learner Profile

AttitudesThe attitudes are what we want the students to feel in order to become more like the student profile.

ActionHow do we want the students to act?

Programme of InquiryThe programme of inquiry (POI), together with the Denton I.S.D.s subject-based scope and sequence, provides a comprehensive, well-balanced curriculum.

Key ConceptsForm: What is it like?Function: How does it work?Causation: Why is it like it is?Change: How is it changing?Connection: How is it connected to other things?Perspective: What are the points of view?Reflection: How do we know?Responsibility: What is our responsibility?Transdisciplinary SkillsWhat transdisciplinary skills do we want the students to possess?

Above all, in summary, a PYP classroom is an intelligent place. It is a place where the easy option is seldom sought and where expectations are high. It is an environment in which learning knows no limits.

Please be sure to fill out all volunteer forms and submit a background check if you plan to attend.

Classroom ManagementThe first day of school the class will establish essential agreements that will be posted and utilized all year.

Our goal will be to create a classroom that is committed to ensuring that students exhibit the IB attitudes and learner profiles.

If a student is having a hard time keeping the agreements we will communicate with the student and parents in an effort to come up with a plan that ensures student success.

We believe communication is the key to a successful year!
