Exciting IB News!

Bancroft is pleased to announce that we are an authorized IB World School offering the International Baccalureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP)!

What is the Primary Years Programme (PYP)?  The PYP is a world-renowned curricular framework designed to encourage students to be active learners, well-rounded individuals and engaged world citizens.  The Primary Years Programme targets learners in preschool through fifth grade, giving them a global perspective and it aims to create a relevant,engaging, challenging and significant educational evironment for all children.

The framework of the PYP is based on an understanding of how children learn and how the brain works.  It allows for flexibility in our choice of content as we work to achieve our school's standards and it connects our school to a wider school and community network.  Like the curriculum already established here at Bancroft, the PYP consists of the written curriculum, the taught curriculum and the assessed curriculum.
