IB Middle Years Program (MYP)

  • MYP The curriculum is illustrated by an octagon with eight academic areas or subject groups surrounding the five areas of interaction. The personal project appears at the centre.

    The five areas of interaction are:
    1. approaches to learning
    2. community and service
    3. human ingenuity
    4. environments
    5. health and social education.

    These provide the main focus for developing the connections between the disciplines, so that students will learn to see knowledge as an interrelated, coherent whole.
