Middle Years Programme
A challenging framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world, the MYP is inclusive by design; students of all interests and academic abilities can benefit from their participation.
Age range : 11-16
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) comprises eight subject groups:
Language and literature.
Individuals and societies.
Physical and health education.
Teaching and learning in context
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
personal and cultural identity
orientations in space and time
scientific and technical innovation
fairness and development
globalization and sustainability.
Concepts are big ideas that have relevance within specific disciplines and across subject areas. MYP students use concepts as a vehicle to inquire into issues and ideas of personal, local and global significance and examine knowledge holistically. The MYP prescribes sixteen key interdisciplinary concepts along with related concepts for each discipline.
- build confidence in managing their own learning
- learn by doing, connecting the classroom to the larger world
