How teaching and learning is organized in the MYP

The MYP organizes teaching and learning through eight subject groups. The program promotes interdisciplinary study that helps students make important connections between academic subjects.

Integrated teaching and learning helps students analyze complex issues and develop the habits of mind they need to participate in our increasingly interconnected world.

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Middle Years Program (MYP) comprises eight subject groups:

  • Language acquisition.
  • Language and literature.
  • Individuals and societies.
  • Sciences
  • Mathematics
  • Arts
  • Physical and health education.
  • Design

Each year, students in the MYP also engage in at least one collaboratively planned interdisciplinary unit that involves at least two subject groups.

MYP students also complete a long-term project, where they decide what they want to learn about, identify what they already know, discovering what they will need to know to complete the project, and create a proposal or criteria for completing it.
