Sekolah Buin Batu is a Candidate School* for the MYP. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that SBB believes is important for our students. *Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme, or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit www.ibo.org

The key milestones of the IB MYP accreditation process typically include the following:

The MYP is a challenging framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world. MYP ranges from years 6 – 10. MYP prepares students for success in further study and in life. 

The MYP aims to develop active learners and internationally minded young people who can empathise with others and pursue lives of purpose and meaning.

The programme empowers students to inquire into a wide range of issues and ideas of significance locally, nationally and globally. The result is young people who are creative, critical and reflective thinkers.

The MYP curriculum framework comprises eight subject groups, providing a broad and balanced education for early adolescents. The eight subject groups are:

Language acquisition  (Bahasa Indonesia) 

Language and literature.

Individuals and societies



Arts. (Music and Visual Arts) 

Physical and health education


The MYP requires at least 50 hours of teaching time for each subject group, in each year of the programme. In the final two years of the programme, carefully-defined subject group flexibility allows students to meet local requirements and personal learning goals.  Each year, students in the MYP also engage in at least one collaboratively planned interdisciplinary unit that involves at least two subject groups.

Please note that MYP is a framework, while the content of teaching can be derived from any curriculum applied in a country.  So, MYP is very suitable with Indonesian National Curriculum as well as the students preparation for the national examination.

Global Contexts

Using global contexts, MYP students develop an understanding of their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet through developmentally appropriate explorations. The six MYP Global Contexts are described as follows:

Identities and relationships

Who we are: an inquiry into the nature of the self; beliefs and values; personal, physical, mental, social and spiritual health; human relationships including families, friends, communities and cultures; rights and responsibilities; what it means to be human.

Orientation in space and time

Where we are in place and time: an inquiry into orientation in place and time; personal histories; homes and journeys; the discoveries, explorations and migrations of humankind; the relationships between, and the interconnectedness of, individuals and civilizations, from local and global perspectives.

Personal and cultural expression

How we express ourselves: an inquiry into the ways in which we discover and express ideas, feelings, nature, culture, beliefs and values; the ways in which we reflect on, extend and enjoy our creativity; our appreciation of the aesthetic.

Scientific and technical innovation

How the world works: an inquiry into the natural world and its laws; the interaction between the natural world (physical and biological) and human societies; how humans use their understanding of scientific principles; the impact of scientific and technological advances on society and on the environment.

Globalization and sustainability

How we organize ourselves: an inquiry into the interconnectedness of human-made systems and communities; the structure and function of organizations; societal decision-making; economic activities and their impact on humankind and the environment.

Fairness and development

Sharing the planet: an inquiry into rights and responsibilities in the struggle to share finite resources with other people and with other living things; communities and the relationships within and between them; access to equal opportunities; peace and conflict resolution.

Week Without Walls 

We are excited to announce that our Middle and High school students will have the opportunity to participate in the "Week Without Walls" program as part of their yearly experiences.  This program is designed to provide students with a unique learning experience outside of the traditional classroom setting, allowing them to develop new skills, gain valuable life experience, and broaden their perspective on the world around them.

The "Week Without Walls" program will take place over a one-week period, during 4th term. Students will travel to various locations to engage in a variety of activities and learning experiences. These experiences may include outdoor adventure activities, cultural immersion, service learning, and much more. Our goal is to provide our students with a diverse and well-rounded experience that will enhance their personal and academic growth.

We understand that this may be a new experience for some of our students and families, and we want to assure you that safety is our top priority. We will be working closely with our partner organizations to ensure that all activities are planned and executed in a safe and responsible manner. We will also provide students with guidance prior to their departure on safety matters pertaining to their trip.

We believe that the "Week Without Walls" program will be an incredible opportunity for our students to expand their horizons and gain valuable experiences that will benefit them in their future academic and personal pursuits. We strongly encourage all eligible students to take part in this program.

The 2022-23 locations provide a good guide as to the types of trips available to students:
