Primary Years Programme (PYP)

American Lakes is a Candidate School* for the Primary Years Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy- a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that American Lakes believes is important for our students.

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