International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme
Middle Years Programme (IB-MYP) Students in MP1 to 5 follow the IB Middle Years Programme, developed by the International Baccalaureate Organisation. The programme, like the IB Diploma Programme, is intended to promote the education of the whole person, emphasising the importance of a broad and balanced education. The MYP is a coherent and comprehensive curriculum, which provides the framework of academic challenge and life skills appropriate to the age group. It provides a broad traditional foundation of knowledge, but at the same time students are encouraged to question and evaluate information critically, to seek out and explore the links between subjects, and to develop an awareness of their place in the world.
The fundamental concepts of the programme are intercultural awareness, holistic education and communication.
For students and families who are transitioning from MP5 to DP inmportant information can be found below. This includes the DP Choice Form. These web pages aim to guide you through the IB Diploma and the subjects that the ISE offers. The IB Diploma is a challenging programme designed by the International Baccalaureate as a pre-university package of learning. Each of the subject groups and the IB Diploma core are explained and all subject courses reflect the current course outlines. Each subject group has a list of criteria for success in the Diploma Programme and grade as well as criterion requirements as a guide for the choice of standard level and higher level courses.
