Below is a brief summary of the program from an IBO published document: A Basis for Practice The Middle Years Program. </p><p>The MYP emphasizes a broad and balanced education which focuses on values as well as intellect. It addresses the students physical, affective, social and intellectual development. In helping students to understand the connectedness and applications of knowledge, it serves their search for relevance and meaning, and helps them come to a deeper understanding. At the same time, the MYP allows the nature of each subject to emerge with integrity and rigor as the students prepare for the Diploma Program or other upper secondary studies.</p><p>The MYP is designed to help adolescents to develop knowledge of, and interest in, local and global issues. The explicit emphasis on communication and intercultural awareness encourages international-mindedness and responsible citizenship. In age-appropriate ways, the program involves students in concrete, socially responsible action and service, individually and in groups.</p><p>The framework of the MYP requires schools and teachers within them to work as teams in reflecting on, developing, organizing and delivering the curriculum, with close attention to the perspectives of the students. It empowers teachers and students to shape a stimulating but rigorous learning experience.
