Middle School

Middle Years Programme (Grades 6-10)

The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) encourages students aged 11 to 15 to explore the connections between academic subjects and the real world through experiential learning projects that build critical thinking skills.

The MYP at the European International School Ho Chi Minh City (EIS):

  • Encourages international mindedness in IB students, starting with a foundation in their own language and culture.
  • Instils a positive attitude to learning by challenging students to solve problems, show creativity and resourcefulness and participate actively in their communities.
  • Reflects real life by providing a framework that allows students to see the connections among the subjects themselves, and between the subjects and real issues.
  • Supports the development of the ATL (approaches to learning) skills to encourage and improve communication, self-management, social skills, critical and creative thinking as well as research skills
  • Emphasises the development of the whole student through the IB Learner Profile – physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically
