The International baccalaureate is a non–profit organization that offers educational programs for school–aged children. Their programs are aimed at developing inquiring, knowledgeable, confident and caring young people. The IB encourages students to think critically and to solve complex problems while fostering curiosity.
The IB programs, as well as the St Peter’s School curriculum, empower students to become lifelong learners. Around 5.000 IB world schools offer the IB continuum of programs, which are more academically adjusted to the rigor and expectations of university and are designed to develop well–rounded individuals.
The Primary Years Program is a student–centered approach to education for children aged 3 to 12. The PYP focuses on the development of the child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and the world beyond.
Children at St PETER’S begin their learning journey in Nursery, where teachers nurture their curiosity through play–based learning.
The Middle Years Program is an inquiry and concept–based methodology for students aged 11 to 16. Following the same student–centered approach that the PYP, this program fosters student’s agency and confidence in managing their own learning path. It is through inquiry that the students connect their learning with the real world. Our Project in Middle Years has a strong focus on science, technology, and critical thinking.
The Diploma Program is the most well–know or the IB programs, and the latest step before the students continue their careers at university. The goal is to equip them with the knowledge and critical skills required to face the challenges they will find throughout their life. In Spain, the Ministry of Education accepts the diploma program to access university.
