Middle Years Programme (Ages 11-16)
Welcome to the Secondary School at KIS International School. The development of the “whole” person within an environment which encourages students to become independent lifelong learners is a key aim of the KIS Mission Statement. Secondary School students have the unique opportunity to learn about themselves as individuals and their role in the greater world around them, while the uniqueness of each student challenges them to strive for personal excellence and take responsibility for their learning.
The Middle Years Programme (MYP), Diploma Programme (DP), and the Career-related Programme (CP) are the central components of our Secondary School program which provide varied and challenging opportunities for students in grades 6-12. We welcome your interest in the Secondary School!
The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) is a comprehensive curriculum framework of academic challenge and life skills appropriate for 11-16 year-olds (Grade 6 - Grade 10). The MYP is designed to foster students' independence and responsibility and to develop internationally minded attitudes while encouraging creativity, cooperation, and compassion for others. Learning activities cultivate a hands-on approach to learning with the aim of balancing intellectual challenge with joy of learning.
Like all IB programmes, the MYP, in its aim to encourage holistic learning, emphasizes understanding concepts, mastering skills and developing attitudes as well as learning knowledge. These are all tools designed to help students be successful in our global society, as well as providing a sound foundation for learning in their senior high school years and beyond.
