International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IBMYP) provides a framework of learning encouraging students to be creative, critical and reflective thinkers. The MYP emphasises intellectual challenge and encourages students to make practical connections between studying traditional subjects and the real world. MYP fosters the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global encouragement which are essential requirements for young people who will become global leaders. Students study from eight subject areas, complete a year-long personal Reflective Project and must take part in Service as Action.
