Middle Years Programme
IB provides a framework that encourages students to embrace and understand connections between academic subjects and the real world as well as to become critical and reflective thinkers.
In the Middle Years Programme, students explore six global contexts that are developed from and extend the Primary Years Programme transdisciplinary themes:
- Identities and relationships
- Personal and cultural expression
- Orientation in space and time
- Scientific and technical innovation
- Fairness and development
- Globalization and sustainability
The MYP is a challenging framework for students ages 11-16 that encourages practical connections between studies and the real world.
Each of the IB programmes reflects a central desire to provide an education that enables students to make sense of the complexities of the world around them, as well as equipping them with the skills and dispositions needed for taking responsible action for the future. They provide an education that crosses disciplinary, cultural, national and geographical boundaries, and that champions critical engagement, stimulating ideas and effective relationships.
