Preparatory Years students are those who are The MYP curriculum framework comprises eight subject groups, providing a broad and balanced education for early adolescents. The MYP requires at least 50 hours of teaching time for each subject group, in each year of the Programme. In the final two years of the Programme, carefully-defined subject group flexibility allows students to meet local requirements and personal learning goals. The MYP is a challenging framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world. It can be implemented in a partnership between schools, or in several abbreviated (two, three or four year) formats. Students who complete the MYP are well-prepared to undertake the IB Diploma Programme (DP), ages 16-18 or Career-related Programme (CP).
External Assessment and Recognition
In the final year of the programme, optional MYP e Assessment provides IB-validated grades based on examinations and course work. Students who undertake external assessment are eligible for MYP course results and the IB MYP Certificate. The MYP is open to any student aged 11 to 15, at schools that have been authorized to implement the programme. The MYP is inclusive by design; students of all interests and academic abilities can benefit from their participation. Implementation of the MYP is a whole-school endeavour, although the Programme can accommodate academically-selective models.
