Middle Years Programme (Grades 7-10)
Senior School at SOSB follows the MYP which emphasizes intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world, preparing them for success in further study and in life.
It is a challenging and encouraging environment, evolving students who are confident, passionate and driven to succeed. As a result, our students will develop the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to remain relevant and competitive in a changing world. It connects classroom pedagogical practices and content to the wider world through the Global Contexts and the Learner Profile.
Through ATL in IB MYP, students develop skills that have relevance across the curriculum that help them “learn how to learn”. ATL skills can be learned and taught, improved with practice and developed incrementally. They provide a solid foundation for learning independently and with others. ATL skills help students prepare for, and demonstrate learning through, meaningful assessment. They provide a common language that students and teachers can use to reflect on, and articulate on, the process of learning.
– MYP: From principles into practice
Middle Years Programme organizes teaching and learning through eight subject groups:
- Language and Literature
- Individuals and Societies
- Language Acquisition
- Physical and Health Education
Core of MYP
MYP 5 – Grade 10 equivalence
In January 2013, the Association of Indian Universities signed an agreement with the International Baccalaureate to equate the completion of the Middle Years Programme with grade 10 of an Indian board assessment. This agreement now allows students who complete the MYP to apply for admission for higher studies to any school in India.
