Middle Years Programme


The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme is a challenging programme aimed to develop internationally minded citizens who think critically and creatively. All Discovery Canyon Campus students in grades 6~10, participate in the IBMYP. 

The MYP includes student-centered instructional practices that focus on the whole child, empowering students to make meaningful connections to the world around them. 

Learning experiences encourage reflection and support student growth within the Learner Profile.


Why the Middle Years Programme? 

Some of the reasons families like the MYP include the following elements of the programme: 
    • rigorous learning objectives 
    • international perspectives 
    • concern for the whole child 
    • a focus on learning how to learn 
    • the development of flexible thinking that prepares students to evaluate information critically and apply knowledge in complex, unfamiliar situations
    • sustained teaching and learning in more than one language 
The MYP teaches tools for lifelong learning and fosters responsible attitudes that help students discover how to use what they learn to take principled action. The MYP’s focus on independent learning makes it the ideal preparation for the IB Diploma Programme (DP) and the IB Career-related Programme (CP).
