The MYP Curriculum Framework
The MYP programme consists of eight subject groups (see diagram) integrated through global contexts that provide a framework for learning within and across the subjects.
Students are required to study two languages, usually their mother tongue a second language, humanities, sciences, mathematics, arts, physical education and design. In the final year of the programme, students also engage in a personal project, which allows them to demonstrate the understandings and skills they have developed throughout the programme.
The programme model of the MYP places the learner at its centre. This underscores the IB’s belief in educating the whole person, and placing importance on student inquiry. MYP students are making the transition from early puberty to mid-adolescence, which is a crucial period of personal, social and intellectual development, of uncertainty and questioning. The MYP is designed to guide students in their search for a sense of place in their natural and social environments.
