Elementary School

The IB PYP enables our students to learn WHY they should know something and how it connects to other subjects and the world around them.

Welcome to the OIS Elementary School. From ages four to eleven, the students develop both social and academic skills within seven classes of active inquiry as they study the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. The IB PYP enables our students to learn WHY they should know something and how it connects to other subjects and the world around them. Group engagements are planned by a team of twenty teachers who bring expertise from a number of countries including America, Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Japan and the UK. They plan together each week to ensure students learn in varied and effective ways and can share their thinking in a supportive environment. There are lots of opportunities throughout the year for the students to demonstrate their learning, these include assemblies, class displays and concerts. I hope you will take this opportunity to learn more about the Elementary school through this website and of course to see firsthand with a visit to our school. We hope you will be able to join us.
