International Baccalaureate: Primary Years Programme (IB-PYP)
The International Baccalaureate - Primary Years Programme (IB-PYP) is designed for kindergarten through fifth grade learners. Our curriculum, which aligns with Colorado Academic Standards, focuses on inquiry and transdisciplinary connections. Details on the IB PYP program.
Culture of Why
Inquiry is the heart of learning at DCC Elementary, as students investigate the 'why' behind their studies. For example, new knowledge is acquired at the school’s Inquiry Zone embedded in the Library Media Center. Fifth graders continue the discovery process, becoming experts on early and modern explorers. Find out about the traits that make us different.
More than a Library
In addition to a wide variety of resources to help students learn, our Inquiry Zone is a do-it-yourself creative space in the library where students gather to reflect on their IB units of inquiry and create a project that demonstrates their understanding. Read about our library and it's Inquiry Zone
