IB – MYP

Age 11 to 16

The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) has been developed for students aged 11 to 16 and provides a framework of learning that encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers.

Assessment is based on a demanding set of criterion and specific to each of the subject groups. Those subject groups include:

  • Language and Literature
  • Language Acquisition
  • Individuals and Societies
  • Sciences
  • Mathematics
  • Arts (Music, Visual)
  • Physical and Health Education
  • Design

At Headstart School, we are proud of our wide subject range, offering a comprehensive and deep exploration of different fields through inquiry. All students in the MYP are involved in service and action opportunities throughout the middle years. 
In Grade 10, each student will engage in a personal project that allows them to demonstrate the understandings and skills they have developed throughout the programme.
