Hi everyone, I would appreciate some honest feedback. I am interested in working in a school which uses the PYP curriculum. I have done the IB Online course "An Introduction to the PYP Curriculum Model" and on paper I liked the sound of it. However, from talking to a very small sample of people who use it (i.e. 3 people, including the person who delivered the course) I get conflicting feedback. Some say it is great, the students get a lot from it and they think it is the way all schools should go. Others, including a TA who worked in a large IB school, mention that the planning for it is horrendous; teachers spend most of their time up to their eyeballs in post-it notes or taking photos to use for the assessment profile and it the students can have significant gaps in their basic skills. Having not used the curriculum I cannot make an informed opinion. I am thinking about pursuing my PYP training further and trying to get into an IB School but I don't want to spend that time and money to be in the situation where I am working 60+ hours a week (in the British curriculum international school I am currently working most of us clock in about 50 hours a week and this is fine by me). Can anyone please share their experiences of using the PYP? Would you recommend it? Would you be happy to send your children to a PYP school and if you do how do you feel about the standards of their education?
