Hillside PYP Self Study

Hillside PYP Self Study

Dear Parents

As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, it is a requirement that each school undertakes a formal year-long evaluation process – addressing all aspects of the PYP program. During this period of evaluation (which takes place once every five years), evidence will be sought from both internal and external stakeholders to verify that the school is meeting all the requirements of the programme. The emphasis of our IB Evaluation process will come from the school’s self-study process, the school’s IB PYP action plan, as well as the school’s commitment to follow the IB Standards and Practices for the Primary Years Program (PYP). The final stage of this process will involve a team of educators representing the IBO visiting Hillside to conduct an in-depth, three-day school-based, evaluation visit.

Since the start of this academic year, we have been working closely with our staff reviewing the IB Standards and Practices and started some initial work on our Self-Study. Parental input and support play an integral part of this process, and we will continue to keep parents informed throughout this process.

Please help us by participating in a short survey regarding your views on the implementation of PYP at Hillside. Click HERE to complete the survey.
