    The Middle Years Programme (MYP) 

    Developing the International Student (PYP)

    The cornerstone of the Primary Years Programme (PYP) is the Programme's Learner Profile (see below). These are the ten most important attributes of an international person and answers the question: What kind of person do we want our students to be? The aim of the PYP is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world. At Campus International School we want the students to learn to become inquirers, thinkers, communicators, risk-takers, knowledgeable, principled, caring, open-minded, balanced and reflective. In all areas of the school, the teachers and staff model these attributes. Learning experiences are created so that the students are able to develop these characteristics. The profile helps teachers and students establish goals, plan units of inquiry, and assess performance.
