IB MYP at Old Mill Middle North
Old Mill Middle North is a distinguished IB World School. The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) is an internationally recognized academic program for students aged 11 to 16.
At Old Mill Middle North, we are committed to developing 21st century skills for ALL of our learners. We cultivate a student-centered, inquiry-based learning environment and a culture of mutual respect and understanding for self and others. We foster a genuine love of learning through international-mindedness, real-world application of learning, and an emphasis on the development of the whole IB student.
In 1968 the first programme offered by the IB, the Diploma Programme, was established. It sought to provide a challenging yet balanced education that would facilitate geographic and cultural mobility by providing an internationally recognized university entrance qualification that would also serve the deeper purpose of promoting intercultural understanding and respect. With the introduction of the Middle Years Programme in 1994 and the Primary Years Programme in 1997, the IB identified a continuum of international education for students aged 3 to 19.
Each of the IB programmes reflects a central desire to provide a problem and project based education that enables students to learn as STEMists, historians and artists making sense of the complexities of the world around them. IB students are equipped with the skills and dispositions needed for taking responsible action for the future. They are provided with an education that crosses disciplinary, cultural, national and geographical boundaries, and that champions critical engagement, stimulating ideas and effective relationships.
The IB focuses on the development of the whole student through the Learner Profile attributes both within and beyond the classroom.
