    Introduction to the Middle Years Programme (MYP)myp programme

    The Middle Years Programme (MYP)  The MYP is a challenging academic program that encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers.  The program builds connections between subject areas and the real world and is designed to develop the skills needed for our global society and foster international-mindedness in our students.  We are currently in the candidate phase of the MYP authorization process, implementing all major components of the IB MYP.

    Developing the International Student (MYP) 

    The cornerstone of the Middle Years Programme (MYP) 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 MYP 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.
