国際バカロレアとは?
What is the International Baccalaureate?

国際バカロレア(IB)は様々な国の学校をサポートし、教育を通じて世界平和を目指す国際NPOです。IBのカリキュラムの大きな目標は、異文化を理解し、国際人を育てることです。当スクールでも英語だけではなく、様々な体験をさせて、真の国際人の育成を目標としています。IBのプログラムは当スクールにとって大きな力になると思っています。
日本で初めての国際バカロレア認定校は1979年にできました。現在、日本で国際バカロレア認定校は73校あります。日本でPYPを提供している学校の数は36校あります。

The IB is an international organization which works with schools everywhere to try and improve the world through education. The programs are designed to help students understand other cultures better and become true international citizens. We felt this is what we have always wanted to work toward at our school. We focus not just on English but on having many experiences to try and help children become more understanding. We believe the IB program has a lot to offer our school.
The First IB Word School came to Japan in 1979. There are 73 IB World Schools in Japan now and 36 schools in Japan currently offer the PYP.

PYP(プライマリー・イヤーズ・プログラム)とは?

IBは高校までのプログラムがあります。当スクールで導入するPrimary Years Program (PYP)は3~12才向けのプログラムのことです。PYPに含まれている3~6才向けプログラムは、「PYP Early Years」と言います。

What is the PYP?

The IB has programs all the way through high school. The program we will implement at our school is the Primary Years Program (PYP) which is aimed at ages 3-12. Included in this program is a program specifically for ages 3-6 known as the “Early Years,” program.

We are an IB PYP Candidate School

当スクールでは長い時間かけてIB PYPを調べ、IB認定校を目指すことを決めました。2020年2月10日からIB候補校となり、IB認定校を目指すことで、当スクールは更に良い教育を提供できるようになります。2020年4月よりIBカリキュラムを実践します。

As a school, we have spent a long time researching IB PYP and as a result, decided to pursue authorization as an IB PYP World School. As of February 10th, we officially became an IB PYP Candidate school and we believe the next steps in authorization will allow our school to offer an even better educational program. In April 2020, we began our trial implementation of the IB PYP curriculum.

PYP Early Years プログラムについて
About PYP Early Years Program

IB PYPは探究を中心に教育を進めます。ただスキルを教えるのではなく、様々なスキルや学問を使って、子供たちにとって興味のある物事をもっと知り、先生と友達と一緒に学びます。
PYPカリキュラムには6つのテーマがあります。Early Yearsでは、1年間で4つのテーマを選び年間プランを考えます。

The focus of IB PYP learning is giving students Inquiry based learning experiences. Instead of teaching children isolated skills, it focuses on encouraging them to ask questions and explore ideas that are interesting to them. With the teacher’s help, they use skills from all subject areas to pursue learning.
The curriculum is centered around six broad themes and all learning experiences we design for students should match these themes. In the Early Years setting, we choose four themes per year and plan our activities around these.
