The Middle Years Programme (MYP)
The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) is for students in Grades 6 through 10. In this part of the IB, students stretch their minds by exploring more complex ideas and by making connections between their studies and the world.
The Middle Years Programme continues the student-centered, inquiry-based approach of the Primary Years Programme. It adds an emphasis on student growth in problem-solving, reflection, investigation, and organized debate. The MYP prepares them to meet the challenges of the IB Diploma Programme, which begins in Grade 11.
The MYP encourages communication skills, understanding of cultural differences, and awareness of global connections – essential areas of growth for students in the process of becoming responsible world citizens.
