The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) is a five-year, rigorous, and challenging program taught between Grades 6 and 10 of Middle and High School that broadens thinking and allows students to make connections between their learning and the real world. The MYP provides a relevant, engaging framework for creating global citizens with international perspectives, universal human values, and cultural awareness. It fosters the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding, and global engagement — essential qualities for young people who are becoming global leaders.
As part of the continuum, the MYP builds upon the knowledge, skills, and attitudes developed throughout the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) and prepares students for the rigorous requirements of the IB Diploma Programme, which best prepares students for their college or university studies. MYP students build their confidence and take charge of their own learning.
Throughout our MYP programme, students make transdisciplinary connections that transcend the classroom by developing critical academic skills and a deep understanding of global challenges. We believe these skills are necessary to succeed academically at school, in college or at university, and generally, in life beyond.
