At MBIS, the Middle Years Programme provides a curriculum which allows students to develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills they need to participate effectively in life in the twenty-first century. The concept of balance is fundamental to the programme in a number of ways.
The programme provides learning in a broad base of disciplines to ensure that students acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to prepare for the future.
The course objectives include skills and processes as well as a framework of concepts; the aim is to ensure that students are not only knowledgeable about a subject area, but also develop a genuine understanding of principles and an ability to apply these in new contexts, in preparation for further learning.
The MYP emphasizes the development of the whole child: affective, cognitive, creative and physical; its effective implementation depends on the school’s concern for the whole educational experience, including what children learn outside the classroom.
