International Baccalaureate Middle Years
The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IBMYP) is for students in grades 6-10 and provides a framework for academic challenge and life skills appropriate to this stage of adolescence. The IBMYP offers a holistic approach that emphasizes critical thinking skills, global citizenship, and intercultural awareness, as well as traditional school subjects. The curriculum consists of eight subject groups explored through six global contexts: identities and relationships, orientations in space and time, personal and cultural identity, globalization and sustainability, fairness and development, and scientific and technical innovation. The eight academic subjects required each year of the IBMYP are: Language and Literature (English), Language Acquisition (World Language), Mathematics, Sciences, Individuals and Societies (Social Studies), Arts, Technology (Design), and Physical and Health Education. In their final year (grade 10), students will also undertake an independent personal project to demonstrate the development of their skills and understanding.
