IB MYP@ Manchester International School: Fostering Creative, Critical, and Reflective Thinkers

The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB-MYP) is tailored for students aged 11 to 16, providing them with a robust framework of learning that nurtures creativity, critical thinking, and self-reflection. In a phase where students are shaping their identities and self-esteem, MYP empowers them to excel academically and prepares them for success both inside and outside the classroom.

Manchester International School takes immense pride in offering the prestigious International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP). Our curriculum, based on the IB framework, encourages students to bridge the gap between their studies and the real world, ensuring a rigorous, high-quality, international education for students in grades 6-10.

A Holistic Learning Experience for All

It ignites a passion for learning while nurturing intellectual curiosity, fostering inquiry, and harnessing individual talents. In our community of learners, the shared responsibility is to cultivate lifelong learners and compassionate global citizens committed to making a positive impact on the world.

Relevance of IB-MYP in a Changing World

        In today's rapidly evolving world, IB-MYP is perfectly poised to meet the needs of our students and prepare them for an uncertain future. The program empowers students to not only understand their own cultures but also appreciate those of others. It actively promotes service learning, a critical component for future success in education, the workplace, and a lifetime of learning.

Embracing the Learner Profile Attributes

        At Manchester International School, we encourage all MYP students to embrace the IB Learner Profile attributes. These attributes foster independent thinking, the ability to tackle challenges head-on, and a lifelong love for learning. These skills are not just for the duration of the program but continue to guide our students beyond their MYP journey into life beyond the classroom.

Inquiry-Led Learning with Global Relevance

        Our instructional approach revolves around placing students at the heart of learning. Lessons are meticulously planned, with a central key concept and a statement of inquiry, providing students with a clear understanding of what they are learning and why. This emphasis on relevance extends to connecting each subject to global issues and concepts, encouraging students to consider learning within a broader, global context.
