The Middle Years Program (MYP) is designed for students aged 11 to 16. It provides a framework of learning that encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. The MYP emphasizes intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and the real world. It fosters the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement - essential qualities for young people who are becoming global leaders.


What We Teach
In the MYP, classes are organized under eight subject groups: arts, design, individuals and societies, language acquisition, language and literature, mathematics, physical and health education, and science. These subject groups are connected through global contexts and key concepts, enforcing the interdisciplinary nature of instruction at Alameda in the MYP.

Students in Action
Students at Alameda International discover that they have the right and the responsibility to transform the learning they experience in the classroom into action they take for themselves and others. Through the characteristics of the IB Learner Profile, the MYP teaches students to become "active and caring members of local, national, and global communities."

The Personal Project
The personal project helps students develop into independent, conscientious, life-long learners. The project requires students  to synthesize the learning they have done throughout their coursework and apply it to an area of personal interest. It is a challenging culmination of the work students have done in the MYP, and it tests students ability to stay focused, organized, and motivated.
