The Heights IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) is a curriculum framework designed for students in kindergarten through fifth grade. It focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. It is defined by six transdisciplinary themes of global significance, explored using knowledge and skills derived from six subject areas, with a powerful emphasis on inquiry-based learning.

Heights Elementary has a very active PTA, Watch D.O.G.S., and volunteer groups. Parents, Relatives and Community Members provide supplemental and enriching activities to our staff and students. Please consider volunteering at Heights. Stop by the main office and visit the Heights PTA website for more information.
