DP Learners are prepared for the future

Listen to students and educators tell how the DP helps learners become more resilient, confident and capable. The programme encourages the development of self-management skills and reflection. The PYP ignites curiosity and encourages learners to ask questions. In this video, PYP teachers and students explain how inquiry and critical thinking skills are used in the classroom and beyond.
