The International Baccalaureate Program is designed to provide students with a balanced education, facilitate geographic and cultural mobility and to promote international understanding.
· There is 1 way to participate in the IB Programme in 9th and 10th grade and is called the Middle Years Programme (MYP). It provides a framework of learning that encourages students to become creative, critical, and reflective thinkers. 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—essential qualities for young people who are becoming global leaders.
