• What is the Primary Years Programme?                                                                                                                                                                

    The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) at Bon View Elementary offers an exciting way for students to learn.   Bon View became authorized as an International Baccalaureate World School in 2012 and is one of the 3 elementary schools in the Ontario Montclair School District with a PYP program.  

    IB World Schools share a common  philosophy—a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education.  Through questioning and an inquiry-driven approach, students become actively engaged in their learning. The interaction of students and their teacher creates an exciting atmosphere of discovery. 

    Students are guided by their teacher with the opportunity to make their own decisions in their learning.  We help students develop "agency" -- which means we give students the tools to direct their learning within the guidelines that are set in the classroom.

    Through the PYP program at Bon View, teachers link California Common Core Standards of Learning to six units called, Transdisciplinary Units.  The program goes beyond simply teaching the curriculum.  PYP is designed to help students become globally-minded, critical thinkers who develop a love of learning.
