As you might be aware, we have been talking about introducing the IB Middle Years Program (MYP) for the last 2-3 years because the MYP has been revamped. In February, the two undersigned attended an “IB Introduction to MYP” workshop in Mumbai and after a lot of internal discussion and feasibility study, we have decided to introduce our current Grade 6 students to the IB Middle Years Program with effect from the academic year 2016-17 (when they enter Grade 7).
Currently for Grade 7 and 8, the school has developed its own curriculum, and for Grade 9 and 10, we have IGCSE exams (International Certificate of General Education) offered by Cambridge International Examination.
We are shifting to IB MYP because we believe in the IB Philosophy and it has worked well for our students as a whole both in the Primary Years Program and the Diploma Program.
We had scheduled an orientation session (on 16th September, 2015) for IB MYP Program with the parents of Grade 6 – the first batch that will be doing the MYP.
Please click on the link below to view the presentation used during the Orientation.
Here is the recorded version of the interaction with Grade 6 parents.
We have now scheduled an Open House for parents of Nursery to Grade 6 on Thursday, 15th October, 2015, timings: 08:00 am to 09:30 am, to address any further doubts or queries that you may have.
Please make sure that you go through the presentation as well as the recording of the orientation session before you register for the Open House on 15th October, 2015.
You will have to fill the MYP Open House Registration form to register for the same. We will close the registration by 12 noon, tomorrow (13th October, 2015).
