Primary Years Academy of International Education is a K-5 International Baccalaureate World School. We are a public school using an inquiry model of teaching and learning. Our students learn how to question and explore the world around them while using the skills necessary to be a successful internationally-minded citizen in the 21st century. Students work in an environment which supports their academic, social, and physical needs through a rigorous program of study. Primary Years Academy is a community of students, parents, teachers, and administrators working together as a team.
It's Official! PYA is authorized as an IB World School
Tuesday, January 14, 2014 was a red-letter day for Primary Years Academy. We received notification that we have been authorized as an International Baccalaureate World School. This means we successfully met all IB standards and practices and PYA is being welcomed into the ranks of the global school network.
Thank you to all the parents, teachers, staff, and students who have worked tirelessly for the past three and a half years to build our school community from the ground up. It is through dedication and a willingess to strive for the best for our students that we have met this milestone.
We would also like to thank the SUSD Board of Trustees, Directors, and Dr. Steve Lowder for supporting us through the daunting process of building a world class program.

Hello Families! Our next Parent Cafe Internacional is on Friday, April 11th at 8:15 a.m. This is the SAME DAY as the Honor Roll Assembly so please plan on having a cup of coffee before it begins. Watch for more information in the next parent newsletter.
If you haven't already done so, go to ibo.org and check out the parent section. You have the opportunity to connect with other IB parents through the site.
Can you believe it's already the fourth quarter of the school year? The Learner Profile trait for April is REFLECTIVE. Please take some time to reflect on your child's accomplishments. This could lead to a great dinnertime conversation about successes and goals.
If you have questions or concerns please let me know.
Ms. Ross, email@example.com
Teachers: We're hiring!

Thinking about applying in the first round, but unsure about being asked to do a short lesson segment? Here’s a bit of advice:
Here are a few other bits of information you may find helpful:
Interview Statement for Teacher Candidates when they call our PYA secretary.
Please create (or use) a lesson that integrates reading and/or math strategies in social studies or science. You will present only a short segment of your lesson to the interview committee, but will need to bring copies of the complete lesson and the supplies necessary to teach the lesson segment to six people acting as students. Consider the good teaching practices you already use to engage students in relevant learning. There is helpful information for teacher candidates on the PYA website. This is listed under ‘schools’ on the SUSD web page, or Google the school name. After the lesson segment, the committee will ask a few questions and give you the opportunity to tell them about yourself. Thank you for considering teaching and learning at Primary Years Academy of International Education.
If this sounds like a good match for you, please take action and apply.
