Léman International School is a candidate school for the MYP. The MYP curriculum is summarized in the image below
The MYP is designed for students aged 11-16. It is a programme designed to support the student as they transition through a period of significant personal, social and physical change.
The MYP provides a holistic education. Students are expected to become aware of the relevance of their learning and view knowledge as an interrelated whole. They are expected to see the similar and complementary aspects found in various disciplines or fields of study, but not to the detriment of learning within each of the disciplines, which retain their own objectives and methodology.
The MYP emphasizes intercultural awareness. Intercultural awareness is concerned with developing students’ attitudes, knowledge and skills as they learn about their own culture and the culture of others. By encouraging students to consider multiple perspectives, intercultural awareness seeks to go beyond fostering tolerance to develop respect and empathy.
The MYP emphasizes communication. Communication is fundamental to learning as it supports inquiry and understanding and allows student reflection and expression. The MYP places particular emphasis on language acquisition and allows students to explore multiple forms of expression.
