The Canadian international School is an authorized IB Middle Years Programme school.
The IB Middle Years Programme at CISB, for students from ages 11 to 16, provides a framework of academic challenges that encourages students to embrace and understand the connections between traditional subjects and the real world, and become critical and reflective thinkers.
Curriculum in the MYP consists of eight subject groups integrated through the areas of interaction that provide a framework for learning within and across the subjects. Students are required to study their mother tongue, a second language, humanities, science, mathematics, and arts, physical education, and technology. In the final years of the programme students will engage in a personal project, which allows them to demonstrate the understandings and skills they have developed throughout the programme.
Assessment is criterion-related, so students around the world are measured against specified criteria for each subject group. Teachers set assessment tasks that are assessed internally in the school. External checks are carried out on this internal assessment to ensure worldwide consistency of standards. (ibo.org)
