International Baccalaureate (IB)

International perspective

Students in the 21st century are faced with the challenge of learning about an interconnected world where knowledge is constantly developing. The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Primary Years Programme prepares students to be active participants in a lifelong journey of learning.



The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside.




Around the PYP framework we have developed a detailed programme reflecting the multinational composition of our school population and our location in Sweden, and capable of being tailored to the needs of each individual student




The subject areas of maths, language, science, social studies, information technology, the arts, physical education and library are taught through transdisciplinary themes within the School's Programme of Inquiry in order to help students make connections between the subjects, thereby facilitating more effective learning

At ISGR we foster the development of thinking, communication, socializing, research and self-management skills. Students are encouraged to put what they have learned into practice through service to the school community, the local community and the global community. Educating the whole child is central to the IB Primary Years Programme. Lower School students spend most of their school day with a homeroom teacher who teaches the academic core of language arts, mathematics, social studies and science. Classes in music, art, drama, Swedish, physical education, library and information technology are taught by single-subject teachers in purpose-designed classrooms at different grade levels.
