Curriculum Framework

The MYP curriculum framework comprises eight subject groups, providing a broad and balanced education for early adolescents.

The Middle Years Programme (MYP) helps students develop both subject-specific and interdisciplinary understanding. The curriculum framework includes:

  • Approaches to learning (ATL), helping students learn how to learn by developing skills for research, critical and creative thinking, communication, collaboration, and self-management
  • Key and related concepts, helping students explore big ideas that matter
  • Global contexts, helping students understand the relevance and importance of their study for understanding their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet.

The MYP requires at least 50 hours of teaching time for each subject group in each year of the programme.

Each year, students in the MYP engage in at least one collaboratively planned interdisciplinary unit that involves at least two subject groups.

All MYP students involve in a Community Project. And at the end of MYP, Grade 10, students will complete a long-term project called Personal Project where students decide what they want to learn about, identify what they already know, discovering what they will need to know to complete the project, create a proposal or criteria for completing it, and think for how the project impact to community.
