Primary School

ISB’s Primary School serves children ages 6 to 11 under the transdisciplinary framework of the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP).

About 200 children in grades P1-P5. There are two classes per grade level, with around 20 students and two teachers per class.

The defining element of the PYP is the unit of inquiry: a thematic umbrella bringing together a wide variety of subjects.  See our Programme of Inquiry, below.

The school day for Primary runs from 8:00-14:00, with an optional Breakfast Club from 6:30-8:00 and After School Club from 14:00-17:00 (16:00 on Fridays).

Lower Primary (P1-P3) and Upper Primary (P4-P5) are located in different areas of the school, but the arrangement of classrooms surrounding a large and flexible common area is the same.

Specific class schedules and expectations are below. For additional ISB policies, please see Policies.
