Kramer is officially authorized! Kramer is proud to offer the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) to ALL students enrolled at our campus.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) program develops inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. The IB organization works with schools, governments, and international organizations to develop challenging programs of international education and rigorous assessment. These programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate, and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
IB Themes (shape the experience of students in IB Primary Years Programme):
- Who We Are
- Where We Are in Time and Place
- How We Express Ourselves
- How the World Works
- How We Organize Ourselves
- Sharing the Planet
IB is a framework of researched based, best educational practices. The goals for all IB PYP schools are that students leave Kramer with a global mindset and a desire to participate in the world around them. This occurs through the development of the IB Learner Profile. This profile produces a compassionate learner who is well informed, prepared to think critically, and problem solve in any given situation.
Kramer teachers implement the IB elements by utilizing the IB Learner Profile, approaches to teaching themes, approaches to learning skills, and inquiry based learning in everyday instruction. All students at Kramer (Pre-K through 5th grade) are IB PYP students.
Added to these academic elements are the IB PYP Attitudes and Action Cycle. Together, all of these IB PYP elements empower our Kramer students to take action in order to make the world a better place!
