Middle Years Programme Model
The Middle Years Programme
The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) is designed for students aged 11 to 16.
This period, encompassing early puberty and mid-adolescence, is a particularly critical phase of personal and intellectual development and requires a programme that helps students participate actively and responsibly in a changing and increasingly interrelated world. Learning how to learn and how to evaluate information critically is as important as learning facts.
Curriculum documents are published in English, French, Spanish and Chinese but schools may offer the programme in other languages. The Middle Years Programme (MYP) is one of three programmes offered by the IB.
The curriculum contains eight subject groups together with a core made up of five areas of interaction. More information about the Middle Years Programme can be found on the IB public website.
