Middle Years Programme (MYP)

The MYP was developed as a framework for delivering:

  • teaching and learning with an international focus;
  • curriculum to students in grades 7 through 10;
  • a flexibly organized programme to accommodate a variety of schools, students and teaching methods.

The goals of the MYP are:

  • to develop students’ ability to become reflective and responsible citizens in a globalised world;
  • to develop students’ awareness and understanding of the relationships between school subjects and the outside world;
  • to develop students’ inquiry skills;
  • to develop students’ ability to
  • critically assess and evaluate information in order to make informed choices;
  • to develop students’ confidence to become risk-takers and take the initiative to act;
  • to teach students to become independent, life-long learners.
