Good Shepherd International School is a Candidate School for the Primary Years Program. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. At GSIS Ooty, one of the most highly ranked International Baccalaureate boarding schools in India, our IB PYP focuses on the overall development of a child with inquiry and collaboration being the fundamentals of the PYP curriculum, both in the classroom and in the world outside. IB PYP progresses students seamlessly into middle and final years curricula such as IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) and IB Diploma Programme (IBDP).
The PYP Curriculum focuses on transdisciplinarity, where learning is not confined within the boundaries of traditional subject areas but is supported and enriched by them. The programme endorses a belief that students learn best when the learning is authentic, relevant to the real world and focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both within and beyond the classroom to achieve academic excellence.
The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) is an international curriculum offered to students in Grades 3 – 5, aged 8 – 12. The program is specially designed to be student-centric.
Just like all our academic programmes are committed to developing successful students, the International Baccalaureate programme intertwines the talents with the enormous opportunities and resources available in and around the Nilgiris to offer the students a more open-ended learning experience.
Our IB curriculum encompasses a framework that allows students to transcend the academic areas of disciplinary learning and promotes the virtues of kindness, curiosity, and compassion that are embodied in our school’s vision.
