IB Middle Years Programme

Middle School students during IFOM lab

YEARS 7-11

At ICS Milan we offer the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP), that provides intellectual challenge for students aged 11-16. It encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world, preparing them for success in further study and in life.

The MYP aims to develop active learners and internationally minded young people who can empathize with others and pursue lives of purpose and meaning. The programme empowers students to inquire into a wide range of issues and ideas of significance locally, nationally, and globally. The result is young people who are creative, critical, and reflective thinkers.

Following the MYP allows our students to:

  • build confidence in managing their own learning
  • learn by doing, connecting the classroom to the larger world
  • consistently have greater success in IB Diploma Programme examinations
  • develop an understanding of global challenges and a commitment to act as responsible global citizens.
