What is the Middle Years Program?

Posted by:

The MYP is an educational framework that requires students to study eight subjects (English, foreign language, humanities, science, math, the arts, physical education and technology) each year of the program. Teachers present their curriculum through the MYP’s instructional strategies known as the Areas of Interaction. The model embodies three fundamental concepts: communication (valuing language acquisition in at least two languages); holistic learning (finding the connections across and within the subjects and grade levels); and internationalism (a growing understanding of a student’s own culture coupled with an understanding and appreciation of other cultures)
