About MYP

What is the MYP?

The MYP is a challenging framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world.

The MYP is a five-year programme, which can be implemented in a partnership between schools, or in several abbreviated (two, three or four year) formats. Students who complete the MYP are well-prepared to undertake the IB Diploma Programme (DP) or Career-related Programme (CP).

The MYP curriculum

The MYP curriculum framework comprises eight subject groups, providing a broad and balanced education for early adolescents.

The MYP requires at least 50 hours of teaching time for each subject group, in each year of the programme. In the final two years of the programme, carefully-defined subject group flexibility allows students to meet local requirements and personal learning goals.

Make a Difference

 The Make a Difference Project is completed during 8th grade.  Students design their own project answering the question “How will I make a difference?”  Students complete the service portion of their project outside of class time.  The reflection portion of the project is supported in the 8th grade history classes.  Progress on the Make a Difference Project is recorded in Skyward under the MYP Service class.
