- The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP) in grades 6-10 connects the IB Primary Years Programme (preschool-grade 5) and the IB Diploma Programme (grades 11-12). The MYP provides a framework of academic rigour that encourages students to embrace and understand the connections between traditional subjects and the real world, becoming critical and reflective thinkers. The MYP curriculum requires mastery of eight subjects – Language and Literature, Language Acquisition, Individuals and Societies, Sciences, Mathematics, Physical and Health Education, Design, and the Arts. The engine driving the MYP through every class moves on the belief that all students can be taught to be independent problem-solvers with strong study skills. The Learner Profile allows students to assess their progress against clearly defined personal attributes. MYP teachers use internationally published IB assessment criteria as a benchmark for their grading. They provide a variety of assessment tasks, such as open-ended activities, investigations, organized debates, hands-on experimentations, and reflections, allowing students to demonstrate their achievement according to the determined criteria.
