What is the Middle Years Programme (MYP) at ISP?

At the International School of Paris, our students aged 11-16 learn through the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme. 



We believe our students...

  • deserve the best possible preparation for the Grade 11 and 12 Diploma Programme;
  • require access to a dynamic curriculum that balances acquiring core competencies and gaining awareness of evolving local and global events;
  • have different learning styles, which we take into consideration during assessment;
  • need opportunities to study different languages and to develop their mother tongue;
  • make connections between subjects through interdisciplinary projects, service learning and by using Paris as a classroom;

Our students can...

  • speak about their cultural identity, the diversity of the ISP community and their personal wellbeing;
  • demonstrate their passions and willingness to take action, particularly through their Service as Action projects and their Personal Project research in Grade 10;
  • connect knowledge across subject areas and connect their learning to real-world situations;
  • understand plurality and discuss issues from multiple perspectives; 
  • communicate what they've learned in multiple languages, including their mother tongue.

Our teachers and staff...

  • act as coaches and mentors who help students build awareness of their own learning processes and implement strategies for learning;
  • set student learning in different contexts based on student interest and current events;
  • evaluate students’ problem-solving skills through authentic assessment tasks;
  • take into consideration learning and language differences, adapting their lessons, assignments and assessments to meet student needs; 
  • support students and their families: academically, socially and emotionally through dialogue and community workshops.

The International School of Paris earned the authorisation to offer the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) in 2003, making it possible for our students to build upon the skills and learning developed in the IB Primary Years Programme. We have since been committed to implementing and further developing the MYP at ISP and beyond. Our staff are certified IB curriculum reviewers and international school accreditors who help other international school teachers improve their practices.
