Schools with IB Curriculum

Harvest International School is a Candidate School for International Curriculum offering the Middle Years Programme.  

 

Our Middle Years Program challenges our students to think for themselves and take responsibility for their learning as they explore local and global issues and opportunities in a real-life context through its inquiry-led, transdisciplinary framework.

Research shows that there are approximately 1300 schools across 108  countries implementing Middle Years Programme, Harvest is one among the candidate schools offering MYP, Schools with IB Curriculum.

The programme was first introduced by the International  Baccalaureate® (IB), in 1994. The Middle Years Programme, offered by  Harvest to students aged between 11 and 16, is essentially the  programme which builds on the learnings of the Primary Years  Programme and prepares the students for the critical years of the IB  Diploma. 

The MYP is a challenging framework that encourages students to make  practical connections between their studies and the real world. The  MYP is a five-year programme, and students who complete the MYP  are well-prepared to undertake the IB Diploma Programme (DP) or  Career-related Programme (CP). 

We at Harvest International School take up Service as action projects  as fundamentals in developing caring members of the community who  act to make a positive difference in the lives of others and their  environment. Our students engage in understanding global issues and  connect them with personal to local global. The students are given  opportunities for community or personal projects so that they can explore, design, implement, and reflect on their efforts to positively  impact their local environment. One such experience is through  contributing toward sustainable development goals. 

Through service as action experiences, students learn the value of  community participation and gain a deeper understanding of the issues  facing their immediate surroundings. This is truly aligned with our  school’s mission to create a community of caring, independent, open-minded global citizens who are lifelong learners, value ethics and  act responsibly towards a peaceful, sustainable future. 

One of the other key features of the MYP – Schools with IB curriculum is its emphasis on  interdisciplinary teaching and learning. Learners are often found making connections naturally between knowledge domains in order to understand the world around them. As knowledge and information  multiply, they think critically while integrating disciplinary perspectives to  understand complex issues and ideas. 

Since conceptual understanding is developed through exploration into 8  subject groups and 6 global contexts as part of the MYP  framework, we at Harvest focus on MYP learners getting hands-on experience through structured and sustained inquiry. MYP at Harvest Schools with IB curriculum aims at inclusiveness and provides access to every student, regardless  of individual aptitudes and abilities within the programme model.
