The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP)
We have been working diligently to implement the programme’s flexible, inquiry-based, concept-driven approach to teaching and learning.
MYP at Hopkins Middle School will be designed for students from grades 6 – 8. The programme will provide a framework of learning to encourage students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers.
The MYP will aim to encourage students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and the real world.
How is MYP unique?
Fosters international-mindedness in IB students, starting with foundation in their own language and culture.
Fosters a positive attitude to learning by challenging students to solve problems, show creativity and resourcefulness, and participate actively in their communities.
Model a framework for students to see the connections among the subjects, themselves, and between the subjects and global issues.
Support the development of communication skills to encourage inquiry, understanding, language acquisition, and to allow student reflection and expression.
Through IB’s learner profile, emphasize the development of the whole student—physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically.
