MYP


   

Kuwait Bilingual School has been officially accepted as a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB-MYP). This means that KBS is pursuing authorization as an IB-MYP world school. These are the schools that share common philosophy, a commitment to a high quality, challenging, international education that KBS believes is important for our students.

 

The IB Middle Years Program (MYP):

The IB goal is to provide students with the values and opportunities that will enable them to develop sound judgments, make wise choices and respect others in the global community. The International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) is a purpose-built five-year program (Grades 6-10, ages 11-16) for international schools and is now being taught and implemented worldwide, with considerable growth in Europe, Asia and the Americas. The IB MYP is geared to meet the needs of IB World Schools, as well as other school systems. It builds upon skills and units of inquiry learning developed in the IB Primary Years Programme (IB PYP). IB PYP teaching and learning “focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside” (IB). The IB MYP also relies on connecting classroom pedagogical practices and content to the world outside through the Global Contexts and the Learner Profile. The IB MYP is followed by the IB Diploma Programme which is internationally-recognized, university-entrance qualification for students studying outside of their home country.


The MYP Framework:

 

 The learner profile (Click Here to View The Learning Profile):  is core to the model and emphasizes the central importance of each student. Encircling the Learner Profile of the student are the Global Contexts which link the subjects and student learning to the real world. 

The Global Contexts (Click Here to view the GC Doc): compose a middle ring representing the relationship generated between the learner and the subjects.   The personal project is the accumulation of this learning, as is community service and action.

The Approaches to Learning (ATL) concern the skills students develop in each grade to understand and manage their own learning process.
