The Program of Inquiry (POI) serves as a framework for the curriculum and illustrates the major concepts that students will be exploring. It is made up of six units per grade level in grades 1 through 5 and four units per grade level in PreK3 through Kindergarten. These units help students gain an understanding of themselves and the world around them.

Our school collaboratively developed the programme of inquiry to reflect the unique aspects of NOVA’s community.

NOVA International Schools is a candidate school* for the PYP. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students. 

* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes visit
