The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) welcomes students from age 11 onwards. The MYP is a five year programme preparing students for the IB Dipl​oma Programme. MYP students study eight subject areas which are Language Acquisition, Language and Literature, Individuals and Societies, Mathematics, Design, Arts, Sciences and Physical and Health Education​. 

Each subject e​mphasises the MYP's fundamental principles to student learning which are:

  • Holistic learning - accentuating the interrelatedness of one subject to another while, at the same time, thoroughly studying each subject discretely;
  • Intercultural awareness - considering and understanding multiple perspectives in a bid to foster tolerance, respect and empathy;
  • Communication - developing inquiry and understanding, reflection and expression through all subjects. This is represented in the form of ICT and visual and performing arts as well as through language communication.
At the end of the Middle Years Programme, students can apply for entrance to the IB Diploma Programme.
