Middle Years Programme
The Middle Years Programme (Grades 6 - 10) provides a balanced curriculum around traditional knowledge and the relationships between all subjects. The MYP is designed to guide students in their search for a sense of belonging in the world around them. It also helps students to develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills they need to participate actively and responsibly in today's complex and ever-changing world.
Students study eight Subject Groups (follow the links below for the objectives)
- Language & Literature (English & Portuguese)
- Language Acquisition (Portuguese & French)
- Individuals & Societies
- Physical & Health Education
through six Global Contexts:
- Identities & Relationships
- Globalization & Sustainability
- Scientific & Technical Innovation
- Personal & Cultural Engagement
- Orientation in Time & Space
- Fairness & Development
In the final trimester of Grade 9, MYP students begin the MYP Personal Project in addition to their other subjects into Grade 10. This year-long independent project is the capstone of the Middle Years Programme. AISM uses the ManageBac curriculum tool for teachers and students to communicate and track their coursework and projects. Students are issued a username and password to access their personalized pages.
