IB PYP at ISTEK Schools
At ISTEK Schools, Turkish National Curriculum is implemented within the PYP framework. A coherent transdisciplinary programme of inquiry has been implemented at all grade levels ensuring that the national curriculum learning outcomes are met in an inquiry based, conceptual and transdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning. At ISTEK Schools, the education programme focuses on the academic, social, physical, emotional and cultural development of the whole child, as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. With the balanced curriculum the development of knowledge, concepts, approaches to learning and self -initiated action are emphasized. ISTEK’s various campuses are at different stages in their PYP World School status due to the fact that they have started implementing the programme at different dates.
