Attitudes

While recognizing the importance of concepts, knowledge and skills, we believe that these alone do not make an internationally educated person. Another essential element of the PYP is a particular set of attitudes. The IB-PYP Attitudes are a vital focus in the development of positive attitudes towards people, the environment, and learning. These IB-PYP Attitudes are meant to be an explicit part of daily learning, modeled by both students and staff. In PYP schools, students should demonstrate:

  • Appreciation: Appreciating the wonder and beauty of the world and its people
  • Commitment: Being committed to their own learning, persevering and showing self-discipline and responsibility
  • Confidence: Feeling confident in their ability as learners, having the courage to take risks, applying what they have learned and making appropriate decisions and choices
  • Cooperation: Cooperating, collaborating, and leading or following as the situation demands
  • Creativity: Being creative and imaginative in their thinking and in their approach to problems and dilemmas
  • Curiosity: Being curious about the nature of learning, about the world, its people and cultures
  • Empathy: Imagining themselves in another’s situation in order to understand his or her reasoning and emotions, so as to be open-minded and reflective about the perspectives of others
  • Enthusiasm: Enjoying learning and willingly putting the effort into the process
  • Independence: Thinking and acting independently, making their own judgments based on reasoned argument, and being able to defend their judgments
  • Integrity: Being honest and demonstrating a considered sense of fairness
  • Respect: Respecting themselves, others and the world around them
  • Tolerance : Being sensitive about differences and diversity in the world and being responsive to the needs of others
