Middle School – IB (MYP)

The Elementary and Middle School Years aim at the global development of students in all aspects: cognitive, emotional, physical, ethical, aesthetical and social.

This development is planned throughout the nine grade levels that organize the elementary and the middle years programs, with the adequate selection and offer of concepts, contents and skills for each subject area within each grade, and with the following educational goals:

Year 6 to Year 9 – IB (MYP)

Ages 11 to 14 years old

Students work with interdisciplinary projects in a curriculum that includes: Languages (Portuguese, English and Spanish), Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Art, Music, Design and Physical Education. The tutorship program allows students to become more aware of their learning process and how to develop strategies for thinking and relating to others, being mindful of different cultures and perspectives.

In 2013, the school had the pleasure to communicate to parents, students and all the school community the beginning of the application process for the IB certification in the Middle Years Programme – MYP.
