Middle Years Programme (MYP)
The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) is a curriculum designed to meet the educational needs of students between the ages of 12 and 16. At UISG and UISZ, we consider our curriculum to be stimulating, relevant, rigorous and balanced .
Young adolescents at this stage of their education require an engaging, holistic curriculum that is relevant and meaningful. Well-resourced and trained teachers provide rich material and make links to local and important global issues. We help to provide a rich, inquiry-based environment, where we help prepare them for academic study. We guide them in becoming aware of their own learning, such as the ability to locate, critically evaluate and communicate information. Also, at UISG and UISZ, we develop intercultural awareness and an understanding of the history and traditions that underlie identity.
At UISG and UISZ we are proud of our wide subject range, including Mother Tongue programmes in many languages. Also, In addition to core subjects, we include Technology, Drama, Sport and Music.
As well as educational visits, we offer students opportunities for further Activities Outside the Classroom, including Roots and Shoots, Model United Nations, cooking, music and sporting opportunities.
