What is PYP?

  • primary year logo The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (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.

    The PYP draws on research and best practice from a range of national systems with a wealth of knowledge and experience from international schools to create a relevant, engaging, challenging and significant educational framework for all children.

    The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP) provides a shared curriculum for primary schools throughout the world. It does not replace the district scope and sequence or the state requirements but expands on them providing breadth and depth to understanding for primary age children. In addition, it provides the students with an international perspective that relates their world in the U.S. and Florida to a larger global community. The curriculum is designed as an interactive whole, that eventually encompasses the full range of disciplines and adds to the district and state guidelines.

    Wilton Manors Elementary IB World School is a magnet program. All students in the school participate in the program, however, students not living within the school's boundaries must apply to the Broward County Public Schools Demographics and Student Assignments office.
