International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme
Middle Years Programme (IB-MYP) Students in MP1 to 5 follow the IB Middle Years Programme, developed by the International Baccalaureate Organisation. The programme, like the IB Diploma Programme, is intended to promote the education of the whole person, emphasising the importance of a broad and balanced education. The MYP is a coherent and comprehensive curriculum, which provides the framework of academic challenge and life skills appropriate to the age group. It provides a broad traditional foundation of knowledge, but at the same time students are encouraged to question and evaluate information critically, to seek out and explore the links between subjects, and to develop an awareness of their place in the world.
The fundamental concepts of the programme are intercultural awareness, holistic education and communication.
