WHAT IS PYP? The International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP), for Franklin Academy students in Grades K-5 is designed as an inclusive, whole-school program by the International Baccalaureate (IB). Beginning this year, our campus will begin implementing PYP. The PYP prepares students to become active, caring, lifelong learners who demonstrate respect for themselves and others and have the capacity to participate in the world around them. It focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both within and beyond the classroom.
