Our kindergarten and primary school in the Levent Campus joined IB World Schools on August 15, 2014; our kindergarten and primary school in the Tepeören Campus joined IB World Schools on July 10, 2019.
The education offered in our kindergarten and primary school is within the framework of the “student-centered” PYP which is based on the principle of Inquiry based Learning. As the Terakki Foundation Schools we aim to raise creative and self-confident students who have comprehended the method of scientific thinking, inquire, know how to ask questions, are curious about carrying out research, respect human beings and the environment, and are at peace with themselves through the International BaccelaurateProgrammes that are in parallel with our institutional principles.
The International Baccalaureate (IB), a leading organization in international education, supports development of students all over the world as active and versatile world citizens.
The Primary Years Programme (PYP) consists of a significant curriculum for children who are aged 3 to 12 that helps them inquire and is meaningful and interesting for them being based on successful research and practices that are available in many national educational systems and making use of the richness of knowledge and experience in international schools. The power that guides the PYP is the thinking system that is related to the future and structure of international education. This programme, for which knowledge is not sufficient on its own, entails development of skills and attitudes. The “universality” that has been defined as the law of students who are being educated in PYP schools determines beliefs and values. The PYP becomes a means that helps explore learning outcomes from the perspectives of universal beliefs and values, language, mathematics, science and technology, and social sciences.
The IB aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end, the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
