International Baccalaureate (IB)
Running Springs is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP)!
The PYP is not a curriculum but is an approach to teaching and learning that emphasizes inquiry-based learning, collaboration, international-mindedness and student voice and choice. The PYP strives to help students develop the knowledge, understandings, skills and attitudes needed to be lifelong learners who know that they can make a positive difference in the world.
There are no tests to gain admission and no IQ or other requirements to participate in the programme. The PYP is accessible to all Running Springs students.
