Glenwood Elementary is a candidate school for the IB World School PYP (Primary Years Programme).  IB World Schools share a common philosophy: a commitment to a high quality, challenging, international education that we believe is important for our students.  A PYP School is a structured inquiry approach to learning that develops inquirers, thinkers, communicators and risk-takers ​who are knowledgeable, principled, caring, open-minded, balanced and reflective.   

The PYP curriculum model is comprised of six academic areas surrounded by the learner profile, key concepts, transdisciplinary themes, approaches to learning and teaching, exhibition and action.  Together, these elements build an internationally-minded curriculum. Emphasis is intentionally placed on constructivism, concept-based and inquiry learning that are integrated throughout the teaching model.
