The Middle Years Programme (MYP) is the programme of study at Greenfield Community School for Grade 6 through Grade 10 (11 – 16 years old).
It provides a framework of learning which encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. The MYP emphasises intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and to the real world. It fosters the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement, qualities that are essential for life in the 21st century.
The MYP Programme consists of eight subject groups integrated through five interactive areas providing global contexts for learning.
Students are required to study at least two languages (as part of their multilingual profile), humanities, sciences, mathematics, arts, physical education and technology. In their final year students will also undertake an independent personal project to demonstrate the development of their skills and understanding.
The eight subjects are then broken down into areas of interaction by teachers.
