    The IB Middle Years Programme at MacArthur

    Imagine a worldwide community of schools, educators and students with a shared mission to empower young people with the values, knowledge and skills to create a better and more peaceful world. This is the International Baccalaureate (IB).

    "Building a solid academic foundation, the Middle Years Programme (MYP) develops students’ confidence in managing their own learning and making connections between their learning in the classroom and the real world." (ibo.org/programmes)

    Did you know that, along with Annapolis Middle and Old Middle Middle North, MacArthur is one of only three Anne Arundel County middle schools to complete the rigorous authorization process to become an IB World School?

    MacArthur serves scholars in grades 6-8 and implements years 1-3 of the 5 year IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) in partnership with Meade Senior High School.

    Inclusive by design, the whole-school MYP at MacArthur benefits scholars of all interests and academic abilities. Scholars who successfully complete the five-year programme through grade 10 at Meade Senior High School are well-prepared to undertake the rigorous IB Diploma Programme (DP) or Career-related Programme (CP) in grades 11-12.
