MYP in Practice in India

A huge benefit of the MYP is developing curricular cohesion of a school. The MYP also connects students to other IB schools by all MYP students speaking a common language. See MYP in action at this school in India.

MYP for Parents Prezi

During out MYP Cafes at the beginning of the school year, we use this Prezi to spark conversation about what the MYP is and how it works.
