International Schools of North America is an authorized school* for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme.

Our Mission

The Primary Years Programme (PYP) is a curriculum framework applied over 5,000 schools around the world.

It is a broad and balanced framework to enhance learning in the critical early years of cognitive development. It puts the student’s learning needs at the heart of the whole school community. Accordingly, teaching and learning revolve around developing the IB learner profile, encompassing comprehensive knowledge, critical thinking and international mindedness.


The PYP curriculum framework comprises nine subject groups, providing a broad and balanced education for elementary students.

The PYP promotes multilingualism and a strong knowledge of the host country‘s culture. This is why at SNA, the Vietnamese curriculum (MOET) is the basis of our programme following the IB PYP pedagogy to ensure coherence in students’ teaching and learning.
