Lexington Elementary was authorized to deliver the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) in 2007. At the heart of the Primary Years Programme is a commitment to guided inquiry as a vehicle for learning. Units of inquiry are organized under six transdisciplinary themes: Who We Are, Where We Are in Place and Time, How We Express Ourselves, How We Organize Ourselves, How the World Works and Sharing the Planet. Teachers and students pose key questions that are concept-based to structure their units of inquiry. Students acquire and apply transdisciplinary skills while developing an understanding of these important concepts. The PYP aims to synthesize the best research and practice from a range of national systems to create a relevant, engaging, and challenging curriculum. Working to develop the attitudes and attributes of the IB learner profile are essential to developing internationally minded people who will make a difference in our world. Lexington teachers balance their program with district and California Common Core State Standards.
