International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme
International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP)
The MYP aims to develop active learners that embody the IB Learner profile*. The MYP focuses on developing internationally minded young people who can empathize with others and pursue lives of purpose and meaning after high school graduation. The MYP empowers students to inquire into a wide range of issues and ideas of significance locally, nationally and globally. What results is young people who are creative, critical and reflective thinkers who are college and/or career ready.
West High School is very excited to offer this comprehensive programme that encourages students to manage their own learning, make connections between what they learn in the classroom and the larger world awaiting them after graduation. The IB Middle Years and Diploma Programmes help students to develop an understanding of global issues as well as their responsibilities as global citizens.
