The Journey to MYP at SOS-HGIC
Rationale for transition to MYP
SOS-HGIC is committed to becoming a school that offers the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) for the two years prior to the IB Diploma Programme (DP) that we have offered since 1993. There are two related reasons for doing this:
- To allow us to focus on providing to our students the best possible preparation for the DP and beyond
- To create a coherent four-year academic education for our students with one consistent educational philosophy
The school needs to go through a process of candidacy and then authorisation in order to offer the MYP. Our application for candidacy will be lodged early in 2018, teaching will begin in August 2018, and full authorisation will coincide with our first cohort of students emerging from the programme in 2020.
