IB Academics

The International Baccalaureate Organization works with schools, governments, and international organizations to develop challenging programs of international education and rigorous assessment. This Primary Years Programme (PYP) encourages students across the world to become active, compassionate, and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right. 

What is so special about the PYP?

The PYP focuses on the development of the whole child and provides a framework that can meet a child’s academic, social, physical, emotional, and cultural needs. The inquiry-based approach lends itself to being integrated across the curriculum. Students take ownership of their skills and attitudes to help prepare them for life in a global world. The PYP also caters to all of the different kinds of learners you get in the classroom. There is something for everybody. The PYP allows students to gain a deeper understanding of the concepts.

Roxboro’s IB Mission

Our mission at Roxboro Elementary, in partnership with our families and the community, is to encourage our students to become respectful, positive, and compassionate life-long learners.

 We challenge our students to become involved in our world and engage in rigorous, inquiry-based curriculum. We will provide diverse forms of assessment and participate in reflective learning.

 Our students will find their passions, have confidence in their decisions, and develop the leadership skills to act for the good of all.
