What is the Primary Years Programme?

Dear Parents, 

A warm welcome to American School of Bilbao and the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme  (Nursery to Grade 5). Our school is committed to academic excellence and to supporting each child in reaching their full potential; while engendering independent learners and caring global citizens. Through the PYP, we foster a very positive environment that shows itself in every aspect of our school. We are committed to effective teaching and learning for 3 to 11 year old students and the provision of wide-ranging opportunities and supportive relationships that allow every student to achieve his or her best. We believe passionately in the value of a global education and accept the responsibility to teach our students how to develop skills which enable them to inquire, to question, to solve problems in constructive ways and to develop appreciation for their own and cultures and languages different from their own. 

This document provides key information about the PYP in English, please follow this link for the information in Spanish. There will be virtual meetings soon to give you more information about the programme, how we implement it in our school and to answer your questions. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. We look forward to working with you.
