James Sanderlin PK-8 became an authorized Primary Years Programme (PYP) in February 2007, under the umbrella of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Organization. Sanderlin's IB Primary Years Programme focuses on stimulating curiosity and inquiry in order to foster a spirit of discovery and enjoyment of learning. Through the 10 traits of the IB learner profile, our school aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. With our goal of developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who want to make a difference in making the world a better and more peaceful place for all, IB themes of global significance are explored each year from PreK through 5th grade.
The aim of all IB programmes, PYP, MYP, and Diploma, is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world. Take Action!
