The engine driving the MYP through every class moves on the belief that there are different approaches to learning. All students can be taught to be independent problem-solvers with strong study skills.
MYP teachers use internationally published IB assessment criteria as a benchmark for their grading. They provide a variety of assessment tasks, such as open-ended activities, investigations, organized debates, hands-on experimentations, and reflections, allowing students to demonstrate their achievement according to the determined criteria. In addition, the MYP provides experiential learning through service, whereby students take planned action and reflect on their personal growth.
MYP teachers organize their own curriculum paying specific attention to ensuring that teaching and learning are in context, connected to the lives of the students and the world that they experience. In addition, teaching is concept-based, supporting student inquiry, and giving a starting place for deeper academic understanding as well as interdisciplinary learning. t, eight-month-long assignment that showcases the skills that our students have developed throughout the five years of their MYP studies.
