IB Middle Years Programme (MYP)

The Middle Years Programme seeks to meet the academic and developmental needs of students in grades six through ten.  Richland Northeast will offer material for grades 9 and 10.  The curriculum promotes responsible global citizenship and intercultural awareness while developing critical thinking skills and providing interdisciplinary instruction.

  • All 9th and 10th graders are part of the MYP and will receive a comprehensive course study in eight subject areas (English, foreign language, technology, humanities, physical education, sciences, arts, and mathematics) through broad themes called Areas of Interaction.
  • Students who complete challenging coursework, achieve good grades, and complete the Personal Project will be awarded the MYP Certificate.
  • Students will have the opportunity to take challenging coursework in order to prepare to enter the Diploma Programme in grade 11.
