MYP Curriculum

The Middle Years Programme (MYP) encourages students to become creative, critical, and reflective thinkers. The MYP, like all IB Programmes, is transdisciplinary, meaning students investigate big ideas while learning concepts and skills which have relevance within specific disciplines and across subject areas.

In the MYP, you’ll notice that students are the centre of learning, and that learning is explicitly linked to the real world: students learn how to learn, how to draw connections between all subject groups, and how to apply those connections to the world around them.

Well-roundedness is a tenant of all IB Programmes, but it comes alive in the MYP. In each subject, teachers design units that relate to one another through content, topics, assessments, and global contexts.

Subject Groups

Students across the MYP learn through eight subject groups:

Two Meadowridge students using a marker to write on a scope
Meadowridge student speaking at a podium wearing a red poppy
Meadowridge student with fencing sword and mannequin
