Middle Years Programme

IB Middle Years Programme

During the ninth and tenth grade years, GRC students are part of the IB Middle Years Program. This program is specifically for students who are in the sixth through tenth grades. The MYP curriculum addresses students’ intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being, enables them to understand and manage the complexities of our world, and also provides students with the skills and attitudes they need in order to take responsible action for the future (International Baccalaureate Organization website). These courses will ultimately prepare our students for the challenges of the Diploma and the Career-related Programs.
