The International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) is a school wide framework that encourages all students aged 11 to 16 to make practical connections between their studies and the real world, preparing them for success in further study and in life. The MYP aims to develop active learners and internationally minded young people who can empathize with others and pursue lives of purpose and meaning. The programme empowers students and celebrates inquirers. The result is young people who are creative, critical and reflective thinkers.
