The International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) is designed for students aged 11 to 16. It focuses on “learning how to learn” through the systematic development of approaches to learning (ATL) skills for communication, collaboration, organisation, self-management, reflection, research, informational literacy, media literacy, creative and critical thinking, and transfer of learning. It also fosters intercultural understanding and global engagement essential qualities for young people today.
Students in MYP1 – 3 study from eight subject groups. MYP4 & 5, students have more flexibility in their subject choices. Some of these choices include specialising in particular subject groups.
The more students can view one subject from various other lenses, the more fruitful their connections can be. Every year each student from MYP1 – 3 participates in at least one additional interdisciplinary unit between two subject groups.
MYP3 Community Project
The Community Project in MYP3 sees students develop an awareness of the needs of a community and implement a plan to address those needs.

Finally, MYP5 students culminate the Middle Years Programme by celebrating the power of learning through the MYP Exhibition (MYPX). Their Personal Project works are showcased where students use all the skills they learned throughout the MYP that will be necessary for the next stages of their education.
