The IB MYP is for all students in grades 6-8. The aim of the IB MYP is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world. Students are encouraged to examine their world from all angles, giving students the skills to look at issues from a local, national and global perspective. The IB MYP strives to help all students intentionally develop the ten IB Learner Profile attributes to become Inquirers, Knowledgeable, Thinkers, Communicators, Principled, Open-Minded, Caring, Risk-Takers, Balanced, and Reflective.

While developing the ten attributes, students take courses in eight subject groups: language acquisition, language and literature, individuals and societies, science, math, arts, physical education and health, and design. At least one unit during each school year will involve be interdisciplinary and will involve all subject areas. In cooperation with the IB MYP curriculum, students may choose to participate in focus classes in art, dance, instrumental music, theatre, vocal music, or multimedia journalism. Students who choose a focus area will have the one to two classes in their focus area assigned in the class schedule. Their focus class is the arts portion of the eight subject groups.
