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 programme at EIS instils a positive attitude to learning by challenging students to solve problems, show creativity and resourcefulness and participate actively in their communities. 

Aspects of the curriculum reflect real life by providing a framework that allows students to see the connections among the taught subjects themselves, and between the subjects and real issues. 

Mr. John Veitch, Head of Middle and High School shared how teaching and studying at EIS look like

There is an emphasis on the development of the approaches to learning (ATL) skills to encourage and improve communication, self-management, social skills, critical and creative thinking, as well as research skills. 

Our recent school production, "A Lion’s Tale" was presented by Grade 4 to Grade 10 students

While English is the language of instruction, all MYP students study at least one other language, choosing from courses in Vietnamese, Korean, German, Spanish or French. Our students are immersed in a multicultural learning environment with over 40 nationalities represented.
