The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) offers the students an opportunity to evolve in to lifelong learners through a stimulating and challenging course of study. The MYP consists of eight subject groups integrated through key concepts and global contexts for learning. Students are required to study at least two languages (as part of their multilingual profile), humanities, sciences, mathematics, arts, physical education and design. In their final year of the MYP, students undertake an independent ‘personal project’ to demonstrate the development of their skills and understanding. The MYP provides a very good foundation for the IBDP.
The MYP programme is centered on the student and the programme strives not only to develop the student’s mind through the various subjects that they study, but also, to develop the person as a whole providing opportunities for action and service. The programme is based on three main principles: holistic learning, communication and intercultural awareness.
