Grades 9 and 10 (MYP)


International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (IBMYP)
Diagram showing MYP aspects

The MYP is designed for students aged 11 to 16 and so the YIS high school program in grades 9 and 10 continues from our middle school program. It provides a framework of learning which encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers.

The MYP emphasizes intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and to the real world. It fosters the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement, qualities that are essential for life in the 21st century.

It builds upon the knowledge, skills and attitudes developed in the IB Primary Years Program (PYP) and prepares students to meet the academic challenges of the IB Diploma Program.
