Middle Years (6-10)

myp logo

Sage International’s IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) is a holistic framework of inquiry learning that encourages students to become creative, critical & reflective thinkers.  This inclusive programme emphasizes intellectual challenge, encouraging all students ages 11-16 (grades 6-10) to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects & the real world.   The MYP encourages students to demonstrate their learning in a variety of ways, take active responsibility for their own learning and reflect on how, what and why they are learning.  

  • MYP students use concepts as a vehicle to inquire into issues and ideas of personal, local and global significance.  Concepts are big ideas that have relevance within specific disciplines and across subject areas.

  • Using global contexts, MYP students develop an understanding of their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet through developmentally appropriate explorations. The students learn about:

    • Identities & Relationships
    • Orientation in Time & Space
    • Personal & Cultural Expression
    • Scientific & Technical Innovation
    • Globalization & Sustainability
    • Fairness & Development 

  • A Personal Project culminates the MYP Experience at Sage International for students in their 10th grade year.  Individual students decide what they want to learn about, identify what they already know, discover what they will need to know to complete the project and create a proposal or criteria for completing it.

  • The MYP at Sage International is a continuum bridge between the PYP (Primary Years Programme) and the DP (Diploma Programme) or CP (Career Programme).
