Designed for students from 11 to 16 years old, the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Middle Years Programme* (MYP) emphasizes intellectual challenge. It provides a framework of learning that encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. The MYP prepares students to meet the academic challenges of the IB Diploma Programme (DP).

The aim of the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP)

The Victor Hugo School supports the aim of the Middle Years Programme which fosters the developpement of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement- essential qualities for young people who are becoming global leaders.

The MYP’s programmes are different from other curricula because they:

  • addresses holistically students’ intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being
  • provides students opportunities to develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills they need in order to manage complexity and take responsible action for the future
  • ensures breadth and depth of understanding through study in eight subject groups
  • requires the study of at least two languages to support students in understanding their own cultures and those of others
  • empowers students to participate in service within the community
  • helps to prepare students for further education, the workplace and a lifetime of learning.

*The Victor Hugo School is currently undergoing the MYP authorization approval.
