Primary Years Program (PYP)

The Primary Years Program (PYP) is a comprehensive approach to teaching and learning designed for children ages 3-12. The PYP prepares students to become active, caring, lifelong learners who demonstrate respect for themselves and others and have the capacity to participate in the world around them. It focuses on the development of the whole child. At James R. Watson, we use an inquiry approach to engage students in their learning.
