The IB’s Middle Years Program (MYP) provides a framework of academic challenge and life skills for students aged 11-16 years. The five-year program offers an educational approach that embraces yet transcends traditional school subjects. Students at this stage–early puberty to mid-adolescence–are in a particularly critical phase of personal and intellectual development. This is a time of uncertainty, sensitivity, resistance, and questioning. The IBMYP provides them with discipline, skills and challenging standards, but also with creativity and flexibility. The IB builds its program around these considerations but it is also concerned that students develop a personal value system by which to guide their own lives, as thoughtful members of local communities and the larger world. The MYP Coordinator is Mr. Mike East.
Grades 11 & 12
The IB’s Diploma Program, created in 1968, is a demanding pre-university course of study that leads to external examinations. It is designed for highly-motivated secondary school students aged 16 to 19. The program has earned a reputation for rigorous assessment, giving IB diploma holders access to the world’’s leading universities. The Diploma Programs grading system is criterion-referenced: each student’s performance is measured against well-defined levels of achievement consistent from one examination session to the next. The IB has shown, over the course of 30 years, that students are well prepared for university work. The IB Diploma Program Coordinator is Mr. Mike East.
