    What the MYP offers students

    The MYP aims to develop active learners and internationally minded young people who can empathize with others and pursue lives of purpose and meaning.

    The programme empowers students to inquire into a wide range of issues and ideas of significance locally, nationally and globally. The result is young people who are creative, critical and reflective thinkers.

    The MYP curriculum

    The MYP curriculum framework comprises eight subject groups, providing a broad and balanced education for early adolescents.

    The MYP requires at least 50 hours of teaching time for each subject group, in each year of the programme. In the final two years of the programme, carefully-defined subject group flexibility allows students to meet local requirements and personal learning goals.

    The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) comprises eight subject groups:

    Language acquisition
    Language and literature
    Individuals and societies
    Sciences
    Mathematics
    Arts
    Physical and health education
    Design

    Our approach to teaching and learning

    The MYP aims to help students develop their personal understanding, their emerging sense of self and responsibility in their community.

    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.

    Conceptual understanding

    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.

    Approaches to learning

    A unifying thread throughout all MYP subject groups, approaches to learning (ATL) provide the foundation for independent learning and encourage the application of their knowledge and skills in unfamiliar contexts. Developing and applying these social, thinking, research, communication and self management skills helps students learn how to learn.

    Service as action, through community service

    Action and service have always been shared values of the IB community.

    Students take action when they apply what they are learning in the classroom and beyond. IB learners strive to be caring members of the community who demonstrate a commitment to service-making a positive difference to the lives of others and to the environment.

    Service as action is an integral part of the programme, especially in the MYP community project.

    Inclusion and learning diversity in MYP

    As part of the MYP curriculum, schools address differentiation within the written, taught and assessed curriculum.

    This is demonstrated in the unit planner and in the teaching environment, both of which are reviewed during programme authorization and evaluation.

    The MYP allows schools to continue to meet state, provincial or national legal requirements for students with access needs. Schools must develop an inclusion/special educational needs (SEN) policy that explains assessment access arrangements, classroom accommodations and curriculum modification that meet individual student learning needs.

    STEM education in the MYP

    The MYP curriculum focuses on STEM as an important perspective from which to consider integrated teaching and learning in concepts and skills related to science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

    External assessment and recognition

    In the final year of the programme, optional MYP eAssessment provides IB-validated grades based on examinations and course work. Students who undertake external assessment are eligible for MYP course results and the IB MYP Certificate.
