Middle Years Programme

The Middle Years Programme (MYP) is the International Baccalaureate (IB)’s educational programme for students aged 11 to 16.  Currently, we offer the MYP to students from Grade 6 to Grade 8.

The MYP Curriculum provides:

  • flexible approaches that allow teachers to meet local and national curriculum requirements
  • rigorous learning objectives and consistent assessment criteria
  • opportunities for meaningful interdisciplinary teaching and learning
  • emphasis on critical and creative thinking, social and emotional well-being, and learning how to learn
  • deep inquiry into human identity and global challenges that explores what it means to be internationally
    minded
  • the ongoing discovery of service as action through engagement with local and global communities.

MYP classes at Ajman Academy choose from six Global Contexts to establish a real-world framework for each unit of study. The Global Contexts and the applicable descriptors are:

  1. Identities and relationships – Who am I? Who are we?
  2. Personal and cultural expression – What is the nature and purpose of creative expression?
  3. Scientific and technical innovation – How do we understand the world in which we live?
  4. Orientation in space and time – Where? When?
  5. Fairness and development – What are the consequences of our common humanity?
  6. Globalization and sustainability – How is everything connected.

Ajman Academy is a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme and pursuing authorization as an IB World School.

IB World Schools share a common philosophy-a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high-quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.
