International Baccalaureate


LPS is excited to be a part of a multi-million dollar grant from the Kellogg Foundation to implement the International Baccalaureate Programme (IB)* from kindergarten through tenth grade. IB is an approach to teaching and learning based on research and best practices in education. It is a framework that uses state mandated curriculum and challenges students to excel in their academic studies as well as their personal growth. We share IB’s commitment to “improving teaching and learning by developing the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world.” IBO

What is the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP)?

The Primary Years Programme (PYP) is a curriculum framework for young learners aged 3–12 designed
by the International Baccalaureate (IB). Founded on a philosophy that recognizes a child’s natural curiosity, creativity and ability to reflect, the PYP generates a stimulating, challenging learning environment to nurture those assets and foster a lifelong love of learning in every child.The PYP is transdisciplinary, meaning students learn across subject areas while investigating big ideas.

What is the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP)?
The MYP is designed for students aged 11 to 16. It provides a framework of learning that encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. The MYP emphasizes intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and the real world. It fosters the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement—essential qualities for young people who are becoming global leaders. IBO

What is the IB Learner Profile?

The Learner profile represents the mission statement of the IB educational framework in action and underpins all three programmes. It is what an IB education strives to create in all of it’s students. IBO
