At YHIS, we believe that it is not sufficient to educate students only in a set of isolated subject areas. Of equal importance is the need to acquire skills in a context that is relevant to students and transcends the boundaries of traditional subjects.
 
Modeled after the curricular framework of International Baccalaureate, our inquiry-based approach ensures that children of all backgrounds and learning styles participate in and draw meaning and knowledge from their learning experiences. The units of inquiry are seamlessly interwoven into many YHIS class subjects, especially language arts, science, social studies, visual and performing arts, and technology skills.
 
Students at YHIS spend a major portion of their time at school exploring a set of transdisciplinary themes, which represent shared human experiences that are considered essential in the YHIS curriculum:
 

Who we are

An inquiry into the nature of the self; beliefs and values; personal, physical, mental, social and spiritual health; human relationships including families, friends, communities, and cultures.

Where we are in place and time

An inquiry into orientation in place and time; personal histories; homes and journeys; the discoveries, explorations and migrations of humankind, from local and global perspectives.

How we express ourselves

An inquiry into the ways in which we discover and express ideas, feelings, nature, culture, beliefs and values; the ways in which we reflect on, extend and enjoy our creativity; our appreciation of the aesthetic.

How the world works

An inquiry into the natural world and its laws; the interaction between the natural world (physical and biological) and human societies.

How we organize ourselves

An inquiry into the interconnectedness of human-made systems and communities; the structure and function of organizations; societal decision-making; economic activities and their impact on humankind and the environment.

Sharing the planet

An inquiry into rights and responsibilities in the struggle to share finite resources with other people and with other living things; communities and the relationships within and between them; access to equal opportunities; peace and conflict resolution.
