Middle Years Programme (Grades 7 to 10)

All Upper School students from Grades 7 to 10 participate in the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP). This program is based on a pedagogical philosophy that complements our Montessori approach for our younger students coming from the Lower School and provides a balanced and broad range of subjects.  Meaningful curriculum links are made among the subject areas and to the real world. The MYP is an age appropriate, integrated program that focuses on the development of the whole student: physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically. The program encourages international-mindedness by exploring BIG IDEAS that engage students in higher order thinking, helping them to connect facts and topics with complex conceptual understanding.
