Primary Years Programme (PYP) Exhibition

In the final year of the Primary Years Programme (PYP), 5th grade students carry out an extended, in-depth, collaborative project known as the PYP Exhibition. The Exhibition requires students to work collaboratively to conduct an in-depth inquiry into real life issues or problems. Through research, analysis, reflection and team collaboration, students utilize all of the essential elements and IB learner profile attributes developed throughout their Primary Years in ways that can be shared with the whole school community.

The exhibition provides teachers with a powerful and authentic process for assessing student understanding. Student teams are guided by a mentor who supports deep analysis, problem solving and action. At the final Exhibition, student teams present their work to the community through written and verbal presentations (in both English and Spanish) with supportive materials and as a class through a creative performance.

The exhibition is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the transition of learners to the next phase of their education.

Why Reducing or Eliminating Stereotypes is Important
Reducing or eliminating stereotypes is important because stereotypes can really limit someone as to what they can do or who they can be. By eliminating stereotypes you are creating an environment where your children can decide what they want to do and who they want to be instead of their future being defined by stereotypes and trends.

How We Can Help
On this site we review books that have stereotypes and we give you recommendations on how to help your child grow.
​According to Time Magazine, children start being affected by stereotypes when they are around 10 years old. They also say that in many communities, boys are motivated to play outside and have adventures, although girls are motivated to stay inside and do chores. They also interviewed many people and some said that girls are vulnerable and boys are strong and independent.
