The Personal Project

At the end of the MYP, students engage in a mandatory, culminating activity known as the Personal Project. As the name suggests, this is a project that is selected by the students based on personal interest. Each student is expected to identify a goal, plan, investigate, self-assess, create a product/outcome, and document the process from beginning to end. This project which is internally assessed is also subject to external moderation by IB.

 

Goal of the Personal Project:

  • Develop deeper understandings through deep investigation

  • Demonstrate the skills, attitudes and knowledge needed to complete a long-term project

  • Communicate effectively in different situations

  • Show responsible actions through, or as a result of learning

  • Appreciate the process of learning and take pride in their accomplishments
