About Us

Welcome to the International Preparatory School

The International Preparatory School (IPS) is a private English medium pre-primary and primary school situated on spacious grounds in Labourdonnais Village, a rural sugar growing area in the north of Mauritius. At IPS teaching and learning takes place within a constructivist context (using the Primary years Programme PYP) where students build new knowledge upon previous knowledge.

  • Teachers use inquiry to lead students to ask questions, investigate themes, draw conclusions, and, as exploration continues, to revisit those conclusions.
  • Teachers follow Scope and Sequence learning documents laid out in learning phases that seek conceptual understandings, learning outcomes and benchmarks.
  • Specialists teachers in Music, PE, Art and Design Technology teach to specific Scope and Sequences  for their subject areas, while making connections to units of Inquiry.
