Curriculum Overview

 

The MYP curriculum framework comprises eight subject groups, providing a broad and balanced education for early adolescents. They provide a broad, traditional foundation of knowledge, while the teaching activities and strategies used aim to increase the students’ awareness of the relationships between the subjects. Students are encouraged to question and evaluate information critically, to seek out and explore the links between subjects, and to develop an awareness of their own place in the world.

At ISPS, we offer English Language Arts, Individuals & Societies (IS), Mathematics, Science, Spanish, Physical & Health Education (PHE) and Design Technology is integrated throughout the Middle Years Programme curriculum. Students also receive year- round instruction in the Arts. We off  Visual Arts and Music.

A unifying thread throughout all MYP subject groups, approaches to learning (ATL) provide the foundation for independent learning and encourage  the  application of their knowledge and skills in unfamiliar contexts. Developing and applying these social, thinking, research, communication and self management skills helps students learn how to learn.
