IB world schools are those that share a common philosophy and commitment to high quality; challenging, international education. These schools are present in 145 countries offering various programs to 1,099,000 students worldwide.
The IB philosophy is to foster tolerance and inter-cultural understanding among young people through a specific method of teaching. This method of teaching, also known as a “curricular framework”, incorporates critical thinking, problem solving, and exposure to a variety of viewpoints. The IB philosophy emphasizes:
- Awareness of the similarities and differences among many cultures, understanding issues on an international scale, and responsible citizenship.
- The inter-relatedness of various disciplines and issues.
- A “Socratic” (question-and-answer) form of achieving knowledge in the classroom
- Student-centered inquiry and communication
To promote its philosophy, the IBO has developed four educational programs: the Primary Years Program (PYP) , the Middle Years Program (MYP), the Diploma Program (DP) and the International Baccalaureate Career Certificate (IBCC).
The IB Middle Years Program (MYP), is designed for students aged 11 to 16 which spans grades 6 through 10, is a framework for teaching that benefits ALL students. The MYP framework addresses a wide range of learning styles, involves all students in their own unique learning processes, and gives the students a standard, internationally accepted foundation of knowledge. The MYP is a comprehensive program of academic challenge and life skills appropriate to this age group.
The MYP is flexible enough to accommodate most national or local curriculum requirements. It builds upon the knowledge; skills and attitudes developed in the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) and prepare students to meet the academic challenges of the IB Diploma Programme (DP) and the IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC).
At RMS it is our mission to provide our students with the best quality education that ensures their holistic development and definite success in the professional world. We believe that IB Middle Years Program, which is based on the philosophy of enquiring and challenge taking attitude, is the best choice for the students of the present world and we are set to start the prior teaching year for grade 6 and 7 from August 2014.
