IB PYP Programme
DPSG International has always had a vision to impart global education of international standards. The school has recently become a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program.
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
