The IB Middle Years Programme at MacArthur Middle School
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).
An IB/MYP education enables students to make sense of the complexities of the world around them, and equips them with the skills and dispositions needed for taking responsible action for the future. An IB education crosses disciplinary, cultural, national and geographical boundaries, and champions critical engagement, stimulating ideas and meaningful relationships. - from International Baccalaureate Organization,What is an IB Education?, 2019.
The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) is a whole-school program in which all of our students participate.
MacArthur Middle School serves students in grades 6-8 and delivers years 1-3 of the 5 year MYP Programme.
Our partner school, Meade Senior High School, delivers years 4 and 5 of the MYP Programme in grades 9 and 10 and offers the IB Diploma Programme to which 11th and 12th grade students can apply. To learn more about the IB programs at Meade High, click here.
