The IB Middle Years Program (MYP) provides a framework of academic challenge that allows students to connect what they learn in school to the outside world, thereby producing a culture of global-minded learners. The MYP is focused on encouraging students to become critical and reflective thinkers.
The Middle Years Program, as distinct from the high school Diploma Program, involves ALL our students, ALL our teachers, and ALL our courses. It is inclusive and focused on every child. Our students are in a crucial period of personal, social, physical, and intellectual development. The MYP is designed to help them find a sense of belonging in this ever-changing and increasingly interrelated world and to foster their positive attitude toward learning.
The IBO Mission Statement
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programs of international education and rigorous assessment.
These programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
