Middle Years Programme
The MYP, designed for students aged 11–16, has been offered by the IB since 1994. It began as an initiative of the International Schools Association (ISA) and was formulated by groups of practising teachers and administrators in international education who wanted to develop a curriculum for the middle years of schooling. The aim was to develop a curriculum encouraging international awareness in young people with emphasis on the skills, attitudes and knowledge needed to participate in an increasingly global society.
