Overseas Family School (High School) offers the IB Middle Years Program to students in Grade 9 and Grade 10.
The Middle Years Program (MYP) of International Baccalaureate (IB) is a 5-year course of study designed to meet the educational requirements of students in the 11-16 age range. At Overseas Family School (High School), students complete the last 2 years of MYP.
This is another unique characteristic of the MYP.
This is considered to be the culminating assessment of the program.
All students will receive an MYP Course Result from IB for their MYP Personal Project at the end of Grade 10.
The IB has set the aims and objectives for 8 different Curriculum Areas. These are the MYP subjects taught in High School based on the Curriculum Areas:
For MYP purposes, teachers at OFS will assess student performance against IB prescribed assessment criteria for each curriculum area. These criteria assess the aims and objectives of the curriculum area.
At the end of each academic year in Grade 9 and Grade 10, students and parents may view an online OFS Statement of MYP Results, based on the development of skills in each MYP subject and showing the MYP level (0-8) for each criterion.
Within the OFS semester report cards, students will also receive a comment on their Approaches to Learning (ATLs).
