Academic Programs

The IB Middle Years Programme, for students aged 11 to 16, provides a framework of academic challenge that encourages students to embrace and understand the connections between traditional subjects and the real world, and become critical and reflective thinkers.

The programme:

  • Encourages international-mindedness in IB students, starting with a foundation in their own language and culture.

  • Encourages a positive attitude to learning by challenging students to solve problems, show creativity and resourcefulness and participate actively in their communities.

  • Reflects real life by providing a framework that allows students to see the connections among the subject themselves, and between the subjects and real issues.

  • Supports the development of communication skills to encourage inquiry, understanding, language acquisition, and to allow student reflection and expression.

  • Emphasizes, through the learner profile, the development of the whole student-physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically.

The IB Middle Years Programme may be taught as a stand-alone programme but it is flexible enough to accommodate the demands of most national or local curriculums.
