As an authorized school for International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP), Genius School believes in progressive learning approach which plays a vital role in holistic development of student. We not only focus on academic learning but also on the artistic and physical development of our students. The major focus of the School is to provide an international standard of education integrated with Nepali cultural values and studies. We offer a multi-faceted and balanced curriculum within the framework of National curriculum of Nepal. IBPYP provides a framework for the curriculum, including key concepts as one of the essential elements. It is accepted that these are not, in any sense, the only concepts worth exploring. Taken together, they form a powerful curriculum component that drives the teacher- and/or student-constructed inquiries that lie at the heart of the IBPYP curriculum. The key concepts, also expressed as key questions, help teachers and students to consider ways of thinking and learning about the world, and act as a provocation to extend and deepen student inquiries.
We will expand our National curriculum by including the traits that IB has identified for an international minded individual. These traits (called the IB Learner Profile) include following: Inquirers, Knowledgeable, Thinkers, Communicators, Principled, Open-minded, Caring, Risk-takers, Balanced and Reflective. Parents and other family members can support the development of these traits and the vocabulary by noticing actions and words associated with these traits. Another part of IB are the Attitudes. They are Appreciation, Commitment, Confidence, Cooperation, Creativity, Curiosity, Empathy, Enthusiasm, Independence, Integrity, Respect and Tolerance.
Parents and students may have already noticed that we have started teacher guided, student centered classroom activities. Our teachers have been implementing inquiry based education into our instruction. IBPYP curriculum will expand inquiry into all core subjects including Music, Art, and PE. Parents will also see more authentic assessment of student's progress through the use of rubrics and more project based assessments. Parents will notice an IBPYP report card along with the regular aggregated report card. This report card will help you see the growth of your child in becoming an internationally minded student.
