Is the MYP right for my child?
Any student aged 11 to 16 can study the IB MYP. There are MYP students all over the world – the programme is taught in over 100 countries.
The MYP aims to develop students who are:
- active learners
- internationally minded
- able to empathize with others
- have the intellect and skills to pursue lives of purpose and meaning.
As part of the IB continuum, the MYP is designed to help students develop the characteristics of the IB learner profile.
It offers students opportunities to:
- develop their potential
- explore their own learning preferences
- take appropriate risks
- reflect on, and develop, a strong sense of personal identity.
At a time when students are establishing their identity and building their self-esteem, the MYP can motivate students and help them to achieve success in school and in life beyond the classroom.
