Junior School Programme
The Junior School of the Aga Khan Academy, Hyderabad is preparing for authorisation as an IB World School offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP) of the International Baccalaureate.
Foundations for Life-long Learning
The Primary Years Programme, for students in years 1 through 6 (aged 6-11), focuses on the development of the whole child and is geared towards creating independent, confident and respectful learners.
Classroom curriculum and after-school activities focus on addressing social, physical, cultural and ethical requirements, while giving students a strong foundation in all the major areas of knowledge.
The curriculum consists of five essential elements: concepts, knowledge, skills, attitude, and action. The knowledge element is enhanced through inquiry into six transdisciplinary themes of global significance: who we are, where we are in place and time, how we express ourselves, how the world works, how we organize ourselves, and sharing the planet.
Through an interactive, student-centered approach, students and teachers explore questions in all subject areas. In addition to the core subjects of English language, mathematics, social studies, science and technology, the programme also includes a beginner’s computing course, physical education, music, art, French and Hindi.
The PYP thus develops students who are versed in a spectrum of areas of knowledge, intellectually curious, principled, caring, open-minded, well-balanced, and reflective learners.
