In Grades 6-10, our IB Middle Years Program (MYP), aims to shape the leaders of the future, who are internationally minded, lifelong learners, and who see the world as one community for which we are all responsible for.
We promote our students to think critically from different perspectives to solve issues that may have local, national or international implications. Our students stand out as knowledgeable, creative and reflective who value emotional, physical wellbeing of themselves and others.
What is MYP?
The MYP integrates an international curriculum framework that is uniquely adapted to the context and culture of our school, in line with our core values. There are 8 core subjects that are taught within broader organizing concepts and ideas, that help students to connect learning to real-life situations. In addition, content is taught within global contexts to give increased meaning to learning experiences. We aim to empower our learners by teaching them the skills of how to learn both implicitly and explicitly, called approaches to learning (ATL) skills. Finally, the MYP incorporates the 10 IB learner attributes to develop global-minded individuals who share the responsibility of looking after our planet, its inhabitants, and resources, with an ethos of peace and mutual respect for differences.
