Students study the first four years of the MYP while in the Lower Seniors, preparing them for the final year of the MYP when they move to the Upper Seniors and engage in more specialised activities in preparation for the Diploma Programme.
We strongly believe our International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP) provides the education students aged between 11 and 16 need at this stage of their life.
Through the rigorous study of eight traditional subject areas and six global contexts, as well as participation in extra-curricular activities and community service activities, it helps students to:
Ask challenging questions
Learn how to learn
Establish a strong sense of their own identity and culture
Develop their ability to communicate with and understand people from other countries and cultures
Importantly, the MYP also builds upon the knowledge, skills and attitudes acquired through our Primary Years Programme; and it prepares students for the academic challenges of our Diploma Programme.
