Inquiry-Based Learning

ISTP has long provided an education that balances tradition and innovation.
As an IB (International Baccalaureate) World School authorized to offer the Primary Years Programme (PYP), ISTP delivers its rigorous and dynamic curricula (French, Chinese, and English) through the PYP’s framework of Units of Inquiry. The six Units of Inquiry are based on global themes that provide conceptual connections across subject areas, such as Who We AreHow the World Works, and Where We Are in Place and Time.

Inquiry-based learning is an approach to education in which students are fully engaged by asking questions, reaching for answers, making bigger-picture connections, reflecting on learning, and taking action.

List of 6 items.

  • "How We Organize Ourselves"

  • "Sharing the Planet"

  • "Who We Are"

  • "Where we are in Place and Time"

  • "How We Express Ourselves"

  • "How the World Works"

The PYP Framework

The PYP framework is based on a structured inquiry approach, where teachers facilitate the understanding of specific content and skills outlined in our curricula, but in ways that allow students to connect, be curious about, and build their own understanding of the content and skills through a deeper grasp of concepts.
The International School of the Peninsula is an IB (International Baccalaureate) World School, authorized to offer the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) and Middle Years Programme (MYP). IB World Schools share a common philosophy - a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that the International School of the Peninsula believes is important for our students. 

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
