Primary Years Programme
Arendal International School was authorized to teach the Primary Years Programme (PYP) of the IB Organization in April 2010. We operate a six year PYP, encompassing years 1 through 6.
Students engaged in the Primary Years Programme (PYP) will develop international-mindedness through a comprehensive, inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning. Our programme focuses on the Learner Profile and thereby the development of the whole child by addressing their academic, social, physical, emotional and ethical needs. It reflects real-life by encouraging learning beyond traditional subjects to make the learning more meaningful. It aims to equip students with the skills to succeed in a challenging world and to develop a positive attitude to life-long learning.
