PYP students at OYIS strengthen their Mathematical knowledge, skill and understanding of Math concepts through a concept-based inquiry math curriculum (CBIM).
At OYIS, we teachers (and students!) strive to develop ourselves using the Learner Profile, 10 attributes that promote an environment of learning.
In the MYP classrooms, students learn basic skills in engineering and programming. They start with block-based coding with the Lego Mindstorm kits to python and later C++ with the VEX robots. They learn about sequencing and how communicating explicit instructions always gets the best results. They gain grit which will allow them to persevere through other situations and instances in their lives. But our competition teams are where the real growth has appeared.
Integrating technology into teaching and learning makes up a large part of our program at OYIS. Students are required to use their devices in class and it is expected that they make good decisions when using the device. For children, it is a powerful tool they can use to interact with friends, play games, and connect to the world in general.
