Fundamental Concepts 

 

The IBMYP is guided by three fundamental concepts:

Intercultural Awareness - Students are given increased opportunities to learn about their own culture and the cultures of people from around the globe. By viewing issues from multiple points of view, students learn the values of tolerance and empathy.

Holistic Learning - Learning is made more meaningful for students by focusing on how new learning connects to students’ own experiences, topics in other disciplines, and situations in the real world. Instruction and assessment become more authentic as students realize how the knowledge from each class relates to their total understanding of the world.

Communications - In order to be successful in the modern world, students must be able to communicate their ideas in multiple forms. This focus helps students to develop competency in reading, writing, speaking, listening, design, and technology.
