Attitudes

PYP ATTITUDES

When evaluating the importance of knowledge, concepts and skills, it must be accepted that these alone do not create a person with international awareness. Focusing on people who contribute to the well-being of individuals and the society they are in, are vitally important to the development of personal attitudes towards people, the environment and learning. By deciding that attitudes must be an essential element of the program, the IB PYP has dedicated itself to a curriculum loaded with values.
