PYP Overview

  • pyp group James B. Sanderlin K-8 became an authorized Primary Years Programme (PYP) in February 2007, under the umbrella of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Organization. Sanderlin's IB Primary Years Programme focuses on stimulating curiosity and inquiry in order to foster a spirit of discovery and enjoyment of learning. Through the 10 attributes of the IB learner profile, our school aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. With this goal in mind, IB themes of global significance are explored each year from PreK through 5th grade. For more information about IB Primary Years Programme visit:
