The MYP provides a coherent and comprehensive curriculum framework that is both academically challenging and also develops a student’s life skills from the ages of 11 to 16. These years are a critical period in the development of young people. Success in school is closely related to personal, social and emotional well-being. At a time when students are establishing their identity and building their self- esteem, the MYP can motivate students and help them to achieve success in school and in life beyond the classroom. MYP curriculum is both an extension of PYP and a foundation of DP.
The courses of the MYP in BIBS include: Chinese language, English language, Individual and Societies (history, geography, morality and legal education), math, science (physics, chemistry, general science), art (music, visual art), design (computer science and integrated design)，PE and health education.
The DP is a curriculum that is challenging and well balanced. It has been designed for students aged 16-19, and aims to help students to improve their intelligence, social skills and increase their knowledge. Through DP, students should become more caring human beings with positive attitudes toward others as well as respect for diverse cultures. DP students are fully prepared to enter to a fast-changing and international society.
