IB Middle Years Programme
The goal of our Middle Years Programme (MYP) is to cultivate principled, courageous, creative thinkers who are equipped to prosper in an internationally-minded world.
With over 15 years of teaching and coordination experience, Ms. Bennett has deep knowledge of the IB and its Middle Years Programme.
"Our Grade 6-10 curriculum is based on a combination of clearly defined Student Learning Outcomes and the inquiry-infused MYP."
In grades 6-10, we recognize the unique needs of middle-level learners, and, as such, couple robust Advisory and co-curricular opportunities with a rigorous academic programme aimed at inspiring and supporting students throughout this exciting stage. We aim to provide learning experiences in a wide variety of contexts that encourage our students to make connections to themselves, to other subject areas, to their host nation, and beyond.
Culminating in the MYP Personal Project in Grade 10, we create a bridge between the foundational IB Primary Years and the higher-level Diploma Programme through inquiry, signature courses, service, and more.
The Middle Years Programme provides a framework of academic challenge and life skills, achieved through embracing and transcending traditional school subjects.
Subjects and Assessment provide a detailed breakdown of what is studied at each grade level. These and other school documents can be viewed below.
The MYP Personal Project is a celebration of learning that exemplifies student voice and student choice, an essential component of our school Strategy.
As a long-term, project-based practical exploration, the Personal Project is designed to encourage students to engage in a self-directed, independent learning experience. Learn more here.
