MYP: Educational organization

The MYP curriculum framework

This MYP programme is proposed in

The Common Core

The community project 

The activity personal project 

The MYP curriculum framework comprises eight subject groups

  • Group 1 Language and literature
  • Group 2 Language acquisition French
  • Group 3 Individuals and societies
  • Group 4 Sciences
  • Group 5 Mathematics
  • Group 6 Arts
  • Group 7 Physical and health education (MYP 1 to 4)
  • Group 8 Numerical and Product Design  (MYP 1, 2 and 3)
  • Theory of Knowledge / TOK (MYP 4 and 5)
  • Orientation                       

  The community project 
focuses on community and service, encouraging students to explore their right and responsibility to implement service as action in the community. The community project gives students an opportunity to develop awareness of needs in various communities and address those needs through service learning. As a consolidation of learning, the community project engages in a sustained, in-depth inquiry leading to service as action in the community. The community project may be completed individually or by groups of a maximum of three students.

MYPThe activity personal project encourages students to practise and strengthen their approaches to learning (ATL) skills, to consolidate prior and subject-specific learning, and to develop an area of personal interest. The personal project provides an excellent opportunity for students to produce a truly personal and often creative product/outcome and to demonstrate a consolidation of their learning in the MYP. The project offers many opportunities for differentiation of learning and expression according to students’ individual needs. The personal nature of the project is important; the project should revolve around a challenge that motivates and interests the individual student. Each student develops a personal project independently.

Different subjects are offered within each group.

The MYP pedagogical framework includes:

  • Learning approaches that help students “learn to learn” by developing their skills.
  • Key and related concepts that encourage students to explore great and important ideas.
  • Global contexts that help them measure the relevance and importance of their studies.

Assessment within MYP:

Assessment within MYP is carried out thanks to official assessment criteria given by the IB: 4 criteria are assessed for each subject. Each criterion is assessed by a grade from 1 to 8.

These assessment criteria are used for all the MYP years (1 to 5).

In MYP 4 and 5 we also include a grade out of 100 points for official continuous assessment tests (devoirs surveillés).
