PYA's second annual "Band-Jumpers Reception" was a huge success. Students who scored Proficient or Advanced, or who showed academic growth by attaining scores that moved from one scoring band on the test to a higher band on last year's California Standards Test celebrated with an award and fabulous cake from Fizz Bakery. We are proud of our students and families for their perseverance in becoming caring, knowledgeable citizens!
Welcome to Primary Years Academy
Primary Years Academy of International Education is a K-5 International Baccalaureate candidate school seeking authorization as a World School (see the note in the right hand column). 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.
Our collaborative team of teachers, staff, and parents are continuing with the International Baccalaureate action plan based on our IB consultant's review and recommendations. We have applied for authorization and anticipate hearing the result in mid-May!
PYA is in our third year. Please review our Program of Inquiry (see the link above) to see what our students will be exploring.
IB Candidate Status
Primary Years Academy of International Education is a candidate school* for the Primary Years Program. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy--a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that PYA believes is important for our students.
*Only schools authorized by the IB organization can offer any of its three academic programs: the Primary Years Program (PYP), the Middle Years Program (MYP), or the Diploma Program (DP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
For further information about the IB and its programs, visit http://www.ibo.org.
It's almost the end of the year and PTA continues to support students and teachers. Check the calendar for information about the Ports Ballpark Field Trip and PTA Family Dance.
The Walk-Jog-Athon was a great success. Please turn in your donations envelope to the office if you haven't already done so.
