IB Middle Years Programme (MYP)
The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) for students from Grade 6 to 10, builds on the structured, student-centred foundation laid in the Primary Years Programme. 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.
The IB MYP comprises of 8 subject groups:
|Language & Literature||
|Individuals & Societies||
Lower MYP: Grades 6 -8
In Grades 6 to 8, all students take all the courses in all groups except in Language Acquisition where students choose any one language. Apart from the assessed subjects, students also undertake some unassessed curricula which enrich their learning in various ways. This includes Dance, Music and Drama
Upper MYP: Grades 9 -10
For Grade 9 and 10, students are able to make subject-choices keeping in view their interests for Grade 11 and 12 and further studies. Students prepare themselves for an e-assessment which will take place at the end of Grade 10. E-assessment consists of on-screen assessments and e-portfolios. In Grades 9 and 10, students will continue to participate in Community Service and additionally do a Personal Project and take an Inter-disciplinary assessment.
Each year, students indulge in making connections between subjects and transferring knowledge gained in one subject to another, through cross-curricular and Interdisciplinary Projects.
