Our Elementary School in Barcelona is now an authorized IB World School

7 July 2020

In july 2020 ES International School (ESIS) received confirmation of our acceptance as an IB (International Baccalaureate) Primary Years Programme (PYP).

It has been a journey of growth and determination, and one that has strengthened our community and ESIS family. Our classrooms in action now breathe a sense of freedom, where each learner is unique and the driver of their own learning. 

Last April 2020, two members of the IB spoke to representatives of our community - parents, students, teachers, and school leaders, and visited our classrooms, students’ and teachers’ homes, and campus via various online platforms to get a sense of ESIS Elementary and our implementation of the Primary Years Programme.

We all agreed that it is one that offers a dynamic educational environment focused on inquiry and agency, in an effort to create lifelong, international-minded learners - learners who value engaging with both local and global communities. 

Its philosophy is perhaps best summed up by the learner profile attributes, that encourage learners to become 'inquirers, thinkers, communicators, risk-takers, knowledgeable, principled, caring, open-minded, balanced, and reflective.'

It has transformed the whole ESIS and ASC community into lifelong learners. With a growth mindset at the core of what we do, we know that this is not the end of the journey; rather, this is only the beginning.
