In our school, the MYP aims to develop active learners and internationally minded young people who can empathize with others and pursue lives of purpose and meaning.
The programme empowers students to inquire into a wide range of issues and ideas of significance locally, nationally and globally. The result is young people who are creative, critical and reflective thinkers.
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) comprises eight subject groups:
|Language and literature||Arts|
|Individuals and societies||Physical and health education|
MYP students also complete a long-term project, where they decide what they want to learn about, identify what they already know, discovering what they will need to know to complete the project, and create a proposal or criteria for completing it.
Students learn best when their learning experiences have context and are connected to their lives and their experience of the world that they have experienced.
Using global contexts, MYP students develop an understanding of their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet through developmentally appropriate explorations of:
|identities and relationships||scientific and technical innovation|
|personal and cultural identity||fairness and development|
|orientations in space and||globalization and sustainability|
The MYP aims to help students develop their personal understanding, their emerging sense of self and responsibility in their community. MYP students use concepts as a vehicle to inquire into issues and ideas of personal, local and global significance and examine knowledge holistically.
