    The International Baccalaureate (IB) World School at Huffman Elementary Primary Years Programme (PYP) fosters the development of knowledgeable, principled and internationally minded citizens. The IB PYP focuses on the whole child, develops effective approaches to teaching and learning, works to increase an understanding of languages and culture, and explores globally significant ideas and issues. Our scholars approach the world with an open mind and aspire to understand the different perspectives and ideas of others, while helping to create a more peaceful world.
