The Middle Years Programme (IBMYP) is specially designed for the unique needs of children ages eleven to sixteen (grades 6 through 10), at a time when they need to develop good learning habits, self-confidence and a thorough understanding of their academic subjects.
Our student-centred educational approach both embraces and transcends traditional school subjects by helping our students to see the connections between the academic disciplines. Our Middle Years Programme is designed to suit the needs of the internationally mobile student. We encourage students to be active participants in their learning, to share their own experiences and knowledge within the classroom and to value the diversity of thought throughout our community.
We embrace the IB goal of providing our students with “the intellect and skills to pursue lives of purpose and meaning” and in doing so promote the characteristics of the IB Learner profile. At ISA, we seek to help our students develop intellectually, emotionally and physically on their individual journeys to self-discovery. We aim to prepare our students for the future, to help them make a difference in this world and most importantly, to learn how to learn.
