Primary Years Program
Belvedere Elementary is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. The IB Primary Years Program (PYP) is a rigorous, internationally recognized educational program for all students. It helps students to take an active part in their education, learn about the world around them, and use what they are learning to make a difference in the world. Through the PYP, students become globally--minded thinkers, inquirers, and problem solvers.
