At The International School of São Paulo (GIS SP), we follow the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP), which is designed to nurture and develop the whole child academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. The PYP framework emphasizes inquiry-based learning, where students actively explore real-world issues and concepts.
