The MYP emphasizes intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and the real world. It fosters the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement.
The MYP consists of eight subject groups: language and literature, language acquisition, individuals and societies, sciences, mathematics, arts, physical and health education, and design.
MYP teachers organize their own curriculum paying specific attention to ensuring that teaching and learning is in context, connected to the lives of the students and the world that they experience. In addition teaching is concept based, supporting student inquiry and giving a starting place for deeper academic understanding as well as interdisciplinary learning.
