Ms. Callie Janosky - IB PYP Coordinator

As an IB World School, we are committed to offering the highest quality inquiry-based instruction through the Primary Years Program (PYP). Our scholars have ownership over their learning and are encouraged to wonder, think deeply, communicate, by open-minded, and to reflect along the way. The IB program is academically rigorous and provides many advantages to its graduates.


The PYP focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in school and in the world beyond. The PYP offers a transformative experience for students, teachers and whole school communities and delivers excellent outcomes by providing an education that is engaging, relevant, challenging, and significant.

PYP learners know how to take ownership of their learning, collaborating with teachers to deepen understanding and increase their confidence and self-motivation. Through actively engaging in integrated ongoing assessment they become effective, self-regulated learners who can act on constructive feedback.

Guided by six transdisciplinary themes of global significance, students broaden their learning by developing their conceptual understandings, strengthening their knowledge and skills across, between and beyond subject areas.

 Our Path to IB

As of December 16, 2020, Bluebonnet Trail Elementary is officially an IB World School authorized to offer the Primary Years Program to all Kinder through 5th grade students! We are all so excited to join the IB family, and continue our efforts to learn globally and take action!
