What is The International Baccalaureate?

In April 2009, Millarville Community School became one of only six public schools in Alberta — and the only one in southern Alberta — to be authorized as an International Baccalaureate World School offering the Primary Years Programme.  This was the culmination of four years of work by teachers at the school.

The International Baccalaureate (IB) aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

At Millarville Community School, students in Kindergarten through Grade 8 follow the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP).  The PYP focuses on the development of the whole child as it strives to prepare students to be contributing citizens of the world and lifelong learners.  The curriculum, which follows the Alberta Education Program of Studies, is designed to meet the academic, social, physical, emotional and cultural needs of young students.  It is developed around six transdisciplinary themes:

  • Who we are
  • Where we are in place and time
  • How we express ourselves
  • How the world works
  • How we organize ourselves
  • Sharing the planet
