About Alta Public Schools

Our Philosophy
Our philosophy is that in order for children to be successful in the twenty-first century global society, each community needs schools that focuses on the development of the whole child. It is not enough to teach children to give them the tools but to teach them to be inquisitive about what the tools are used for and in relation to what and in what context.

These are the tenets of International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (IBPYP) and the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (IBMYP), which have been developed by incorporating the best educational practices from around the world.

The curricular premise consist of incorporating thematic, inquiry-based units of instruction which focus on structured inquiry methods that promote higher-level questioning and global thinking, encouraging a child’s natural curiosity.
