IB Middle Years Programme

The goal of our Middle Years Programme is to cultivate principled, courageous, creative thinkers who are equipped to prosper in an internationally-minded world.

"Our Grade 6-10 curriculum is based on a combination of clearly defined Student Learning Outcomes and the inquiry-infused International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP)."

Grade 6 to 10

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 interdisciplinary inquiry, signature courses, service, and more.

Jade Bennett

With over 15 years of teaching and coordination experience, Ms. Bennett has deep knowledge of the IB and its Middle Years Programme.

MYP Personal Project

The MYP Personal Project in Grade 10 is a long-term, project-based practical exploration that is designed to encourage students to engage in a self-directed, independent learning experience.

The Personal Project assesses students' Approaches To Learning skills: communication, self-management, research, thinking, or social skills.
