Welcome to Harding University Partnership School!

As an IB World School, H.U.P.S. is part of an international organization that offers high-quality programs of international education to a worldwide community of schools. IB’s programs help develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world. Harding University Partnership School became an authorized IB World School, offering the Primary Years Program, in the Fall of 2012 but the journey began in the spring of 2008.

The Primary Years Program focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. It is defined by six transdisciplinary themes of global significance, explored using knowledge and skills derived from six subject areas, with a powerful emphasis on inquiry-based learning and international mindedness.

For examples of inquiry in action, please select Grade Levels in the Academics section.
