ЕSCA-Bishkek lnternational Sсhool is an accredited school* for the Primary Years Programme and for the Middle Years Programme. IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that ЕSCA-Bishkek lnternational Sсhool believes is important for our students.
In the PYP, Students inquire into, and learn about, locally and globally significant issues in the context of 'units of inquiry'. The units address a central idea relevant to a particular transdisciplinary theme. Additionally, lines of inquiry are identified in order to explore the scope of the central idea for each unit.
Collectively, Pre-School 2 to Primary 6s' units of inquiry constitute our school’s Programme of Inquiry (POI). Within this programme, the IBO encourage discussion and interpretation which should allow for both local and global perspectives to be explored in the units. For this reason, different PYP schools will have designed different transdisciplinary units to best meet their school’s unique needs.
The BIS PYP team met in August to review the POI and to ensure robust learning opportunities that invite inquiry, are coherent and are connected throughout a pupil's time in the school.
Please explore the current Programme of Inquiry which even includes a few new exciting units! Please note that the order of units taught are at the discretion of our homeroom teachers and programme coordinator. Homeroom newsletters, which will share key information about up and coming inquiries, will be sent out at the beginning of each unit.
