Students will experience 6 Units of Inquiry each year at Fifth Avenue. Each unit is organized under the IB PYP transdisciplinary themes. "These themes provide IB World Schools with the opportunity to incorporate local and global issues into the curriculum and effectively allow students to “step up” beyond the confines of learning within subject areas" (www.ibo.org).
