About Our Program

The Middle Years Program (MYP) for International Baccalaureate (IB) is a 5-year program that culminates in the 10th grade. Students begin the MYP in either the 6th grade at Raney or 7th grade at either CFIS or Raney Intermediate schools. Students may also enter the MYP at Centennial in their 9th-grade year.  We look for students who display the following qualifications

A student that has at least a 3.0 G.P.A

A student that is capable of handling honors-level classes

A student that is capable of handling enhanced Mathematics classes

A student that is highly motivated to succeed

The MYP is an inclusive program but it is also a rigorously challenging academic program for students that are self-motivated with a desire to achieve scholastic excellence. The MYP is a challenging framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world. The personal project in the 10th grade indicates the strength of this connection. Students who complete the MYP are well-prepared to undertake the IB Diploma Programme

IB Middle Years Program (MYP): Grades 6 - 10

Major Components:

Eight Subject Areas:

  • Language Arts & Individuals & Societies(History/Social Sciences)
  • World Languages & Mathematics
  • Sciences & Physical Education
  • Design & Arts (Visual and Performing)

Global Contexts for Teaching and Learning:

Global contexts direct learning towards an independent and shared inquiry into our common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet. Using the world as the broadest context for learning, MYP individuals and societies can develop meaningful explorations of:

  1. Identities and relationships
  2. Orientation in space and time
  3. Personal and cultural expression
  4. Scientific and technical innovation
  5. Globalization and sustainability
  6. Fairness and development.

The different subject areas will employ the global contexts in different ways specific to their subject area.

Approaches to Learning:

All MYP units of work offer opportunities for students to develop and practice approaches to learning (ATL) skills. These skills provide valuable support for students working to meet the subject group’s aims and objectives.

ATL skills are grouped into five categories that span the IB continuum of international education. IB programmes identify discrete skills in each category that can be introduced, practiced and consolidated in the classroom and beyond.

While ATL skills are relevant across all MYP subject groups, teachers may also identify ATL skill indicators especially relevant for, or unique to, a particular subject group or course. 

1. Thinking Skills
2. Social Skills
3. Communication Skills
4. Self-management Skills
5. Research Skills
