Middle Years (Grades 6 - 8)
Our Middle Years Program's (MYP) interdisciplinary design benefits students in the following ways:
- Cultivating Bilingual Proficiency: Our unique approach incorporates both the Chinese and English languages in an interdisciplinary manner. This not only fosters bilingual proficiency but also enhances communication skills and intercultural understanding.
- Encouraging Creative Application of Knowledge: Our program inspires students to use their acquired knowledge creatively, promoting a deeper understanding of the world around them.
- Fostering Lifelong Learning Mindsets: At the core of the MYP is the development of lifelong learners. We nurture mental flexibility, ensuring our students are well-prepared to adapt and thrive in an ever-evolving global landscape.
- Embracing Intellectual Rigor in Multidisciplinary Studies: Intellectual rigor is a hallmark of the MYP. Our curriculum provides a holistic approach to studying complex issues and ideas, preparing students to engage with academic challenges that reflect the International Baccalaureate's high standards.
- Promoting Collaboration and Teamwork Across Disciplines: Collaboration and interdisciplinary learning are key components of the MYP framework. We emphasize the importance of teamwork as an essential life skill.
- Facilitating Knowledge Transfer and Application: The MYP encourages students to apply their knowledge effectively across various contexts. Our curriculum aligns with this by supporting the transfer of understanding, equipping students to excel in real-world situations.
