Primary Years Programme (Ages 3-11)
Step into the vibrant heart of KIS International School Bangkok, where the learning in the Primary School exudes an atmosphere of curiosity and shared joy.
At KIS, the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) provides the foundation for our teaching and learning. PYP students aged 3 to 11 have agency and inquire into issues and topics that have personal relevance. They research global challenges and find ways to take meaningful action locally here in Bangkok.
Within the PYP, we create a dynamic environment, fostering the holistic development of our students, equipping them with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions for learning that transcends academic endeavors.
Central to our philosophy is the belief that every student possesses the innate capacity to learn, and that this learning is most profound when ignited through hands-on, concept-driven, and inquiry-rich experiences. In the PYP at KIS, we are a vibrant community of inspiring individuals.
The PYP is built around six transdisciplinary themes that help students make connections between different subject areas and the real world. These themes help students build an understanding and appreciation of the local environment in Thailand while also developing a sense of global citizenship.The PYP also incorporates key concepts to assist students in developing their critical and creative thinking skills. These concepts encourage students to explore and discover through play and to reflect on their learning experiences.
The PYP at KIS is an inclusive program that is designed to meet the needs of all students. The program is flexible and adaptable, so that it can be tailored to meet the needs of individual students.
Overall, PYP at KIS provides a great foundation for students to develop a love for learning and to be prepared for life beyond school. We focus on the whole child, and equip them with the skills and knowledge to navigate the world around them. The program's hands-on, inquiry-based approach encourages students to be curious, and to think critically and creatively. The PYP at KIS is a great choice for families who are looking for an international education that is challenging, engaging, and inclusive.
