ABA Global School students work on contents through six transdisciplinary themes comprehensively providing the foundation on which the school curriculum is organized, thus enabling learners to engage in knowledge research and construction at the Primary Years Program - PYP, designed for Elementary Education.

The six themes are: Who we are, Where we are in place and time, How we express ourselves, How the world works, How we organize ourselves, and Sharing the planet.

The school curriculum is developed through three interconnected components:

  • What to learn? Written Curriculum
    In the Written Curriculum there is a balanced interaction of knowledge creation, essential skills, development of concept comprehension, positive attitudes, and responsible action-taking. In order to reach such balanced state, an emphasis is placed on the five essential elements of the Written Curriculum: knowledge, concepts, skills, attitudes, and action.
  • The best way to learn? Curriculum Taught
    The six transdisciplinary themes help teachers develop a Program of Inquiry centered on key ideas identified by those educators, which calls for a significant engagement by learners. The units of inquiry are broadly-based and for six weeks enable learners to probe the questions raised.
  • How to know what has been learned? Assessed Curriculum
    As a relevant part of the units of inquiry, assessment enhances learning and enables learners to reflect on what they know, what they understand and what can be done with such constructed knowledge.
