Authorized IB World School

Kamiloʻiki Elementary School is an authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) World School* for the Primary Years Programme (PYP).

IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.

The PYP presents a transdisciplinary approach to learning, where individual content areas are drawn together in curricular units. At the heart of the PYP philosophy is a commitment to inquiry as the ideal vehicle for learning and an emphasis on development in the Learner Profile and Attitudes.

Throughout the Programme of Inquiry, each student will:

 

  • Develop an understanding of concepts
  • Conduct research into knowledge that has local and global significance
  • Acquire and practice a range of essential skills across content areas
  • Develop positive attitudes towards learning, the environment, and other people
  • Have the opportunity for involvement in responsible action and service
