IB Middle Years Programme





What is the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IBMYP)?

The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) is one of the four Programmes offered by the International Baccalaureate Organization.

The Middle Years Programme focuses on students in grades 6-10 while helping students develop the knowledge, attitude, and skills needed to participate actively and responsibly in a changing and increasingly interrelated world.  Here at Eagle Rock Junior Senior High School the MYP consists of students in grades 7-10.

3 Fundamental Concepts

The IBMYP is guided by three fundamental concepts:

Intercultural Awareness - Students are given increased opportunities to learn about their own culture and the cultures of people from around the globe. By viewing issues from multiple points of view, students learn the values of tolerance and empathy.

Holistic Learning - Learning is made more meaningful for students by focusing on how new learning connects to students’ own experiences, topics in other disciplines, and situations in the real world. Instruction and assessment become more authentic as students realize how the knowledge from each class relates to their total understanding of the world.

Communication - In order to be successful in the modern world, students must be able to communicate their ideas in multiple forms. This focus helps students to develop competency in reading, writing, speaking, listening, design, and technology. All students also have the opportunity to learn another language.

Service as Action In grades 7 to 10, all students are required to complete 10 hours of Service as Action per academic school year. This includes students that are enrolled in Journalism, Yearbook, Engineering, Screenplay and ASB.


Personal Project In grade 10, students are required to complete a Personal Project. The Personal Project is an individual, self-directed project completed in grade 10. It is the culmination of the Middle Years Programme that provides students the opportunity to demonstrate the academic, social and emotional skills learned throughout the programme. The Personal Project enables students to engage in practical explorations through a cycle of Inquiry, Action and Reflection. It encourages students to reflect on their learning and the outcomes of their work.
