    Revere Middle School is a candidate school for the Middle Year Program (MYP) of the International Baccalaureate Program. In MYP arts students have opportunities to function as artists, as well as learners of the arts.
     
    The aims of MYP arts are to encourage and enable students to:
    • create and present art
    • develop skills specific to the discipline
    • engage in a process of creative exploration and (self-)discovery
    • make purposeful connections between investigation and practice
    • understand the relationship between art and its contexts
    • respond to and reflect on art
    • deepen their understanding of the world.
     
    The objectives of arts in the program encompass the factual, conceptual, procedural, and metacognitive dimensions of knowledge. These objectives include: knowing & understanding, developing skills, thinking creatively, and responding.
