The Middle Years Program (MYP) of International Baccalaureate (IB) is a course of study designed to meet the educational requirements of students in the 11-16 age range. At Overseas Family School, students complete the first 3 years of MYP in the Middle School (Grade 6 to Grade 8). Students will complete the final 2 years of the 5-year MYP in the High School (Grade 9 and Grade 10).
The International Baccalaureate Diploma is a rigorous pre-university course of study that leads to examinations, for highly motivated secondary school students. It is a comprehensive two-year curriculum that generally allows students to fulfil requirements of various national education systems. IB Diploma holders gain admission to universities throughout the world, including the most elite.
The IB Diploma model incorporates the best elements of several national systems, without being based on any one. Responsibility for all academic judgments about the quality of candidates' work rests with 5,000 examiners worldwide, led by chief examiners with international authority in their fields.
