MIDDLE YEARS PROGRAM (MYP)
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 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.
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:
