The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) consists of eight subject groups integrated through five interactive areas providing global contexts for learning.
The MYP’s core features five contexts for learning that provide powerful opportunities to engage in the study of issues that affect students today. Using a common language, teachers organize the curriculum through the following global context:
Approaches to learning (ATL) represents learning skills that students will develop and apply during the programme and beyond.
Community and service considers how students can learn about their place within communities and be motivated to act in new contexts.
Health and social education is designed to help students identify and develop skills that will enable them to function as effective members of societies. They also learn about how they are changing and how to make informed decisions that relate to their welfare.
Environments explores how humans interact with the world at large and the parts we play in our virtual, natural and built environments.
Human ingenuity deals with the way in which human minds have influenced the world and considers the consequences of human thought and action.
