The Middle Years Programme at Lausanne, grades 5-10, prepares students for success in school and to become lifelong learners. It provides a structure of learning that emphasizes a challenging intellect, that encourages students to make connections between their traditional studies and the real world. MYP learners are motivated to be creative, critical and reflective thinkers.
The MYP offers a broad range of understanding through the study of eight different subject groups that focus on Sciences, Mathematics, Language and Literature, Language Acquisition, Arts, Physical and Health Education, and Design.
The MYP shows the relationship between disciplines through the six Global Context: Identities and relationships, orientation in space and time, scientific and technical information, personal and cultural expression, fairness and development and globalization and sustainability.
The MYP approaches learning holistically by addressing the intellectual, social, emotional and physical development of students. The Programme focuses on the traits of the Learner Profile and the skills developed through the Approaches to Learning prepare students to become problem solvers and active participants within the community.
MYP learners engage with larger ideas, rather than memorizing facts for an exam, so students can develop learning skills that can be utilized to promote independence throughout their life.
Students who complete the MYP are more prepared for their academic requirements and the next step in their education.
