Based on the 国际学士学位 Primary Years Programme (PYP), the curriculum provides a framework for inquiry-based learning that focuses on the development of the whole child, 无论是在课堂上还是在外面的世界. Teachers often respond to students’ questions with further questions designed to guide that inquisitive mind to its own solution. The goal 通过 this process is to generate independent thinkers 和 problem solvers. 2级 also focuses on community by developing 和 strengthening work ethic, 责任, 尊重, 解决冲突和各种社交技巧. Every day is filled with choices, outcomes 和 opportunities for growth.
