The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) is designed for students aged 11 to 16. MYP builds a framework of academics that also continues the IB themes of curiosity and inquisitiveness. Students are encouraged to make connections between their traditional academic subjects and the "real world." Critical thinking is a key attribute of the MYP program, as well as the study of foreign languages, technology, and other traditional subjects.
Schools certified to teach MYP are IB World Schools.
