MYP is highlighted as an innovative program that aims for students’ long-term education thanks to its characteristics that integrate subjects with relevant concepts which play a key role in life.
MYP Education Model
There are eight subject groups integrated in MYP. The approach to learning, approaches to teaching, global contexts and concepts, and individual development of the student at the center of the process are linked to the educational experiences in the eight courses. These universal contexts and key concepts are found in all lessons and each lesson develops general and specific aspects of these areas. At the end of the program, the student is expected to prepare an “Individual Project” reflecting the achievements he / she has achieved throughout the MYP process.
