MYP: Middle Years Programme
Education must be multidimensional
The Middle Years are a challenging time of transition for learners as they move from childhood to adolescence. This crucial period of personal, social, physical and intellectual growth is marked by uncertainty on one hand and increasing maturity on the other.
Through the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP), designed for students aged 11 to 16, teachers extend academic teaching by helping students further develop critical thinking, solve real-life problems, develop knowledge of local and global issues, communicate ideas, engage in public debate and express creativity through action.
Through this process, students develop a certain independence while learning to manage time and multiple expectations. The MYP, planned and monitored by a dedicated MYP Coordinator, aims at building students’ confidence in their academic and personal development.
