The IB Middle Years Programme builds on the structured, student-centred foundation laid in the Primary Years Programme in Primary School. Its framework encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real World.
All the subjects are criterion-related and have strong inter-disciplinary elements. This curriculum is approached through inquiry, developing what the students know into an exciting journey of knowing more, thus stimulating a student’s latent curiosity and honing the skills of research, expression, presentation and application. Students learn to share experiences and work in teams.
An exciting component is the Personal Project, an individual long-term project completed in Grade 10. It is the consolidation of learning in the MYP wherein students choose a topic of their interest which they wish to learn more about. They achieve it through systematic research and are assessed through a set criterion.
