IB Middle Years Programme

 


The Middle School of Sreenidhi International School, Hyderabad is an authorized school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) and thereby making us an IB World School, one of the very few schools in India with all the three programmes-PYP/MYP/DP.
 
The MYP is designed for students aged 11 to 16. It provides a framework of learning that encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. The MYP emphasizes intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and the real world. It fosters the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement—essential qualities for young people who are becoming global leaders. ?The MYP is flexible enough to accommodate most national or local curriculum requirements.

The IB Middle Years Programme:

  • Addresses holistically students' intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being.
  • Provides students opportunities to develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills they need in order to manage complexity and take responsible action for the future.
  • Ensures breadth and depth of understanding through study in eight subject groups.
  • Requires the study of at least two languages (language of instruction and additional language of choice) to support students in understanding their own cultures and those of others.
  • Empowers students to participate in service within the community helps to prepare students for further education, the workplace and a lifetime of learning.
                         
 
Distinctive features of the MYP
 
At the core of all IB Programmes is the learner profile, 10 attributes fostered in students that promote their development as responsible members of their local, national and global communities. IB learners strive to be inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced and reflective.

In the MYP, students study 8 subject groups, with a minimum of 50 teaching hours per subject group each year. Distinctive features of the MYP include:

Key and related concepts are big ideas, which form the basis of teaching and learning in the MYP. They ensure breadth and depth in the curriculum and promote learning within and across traditional disciplines.

Global contexts provide shared starting points for inquiry into what it means to be internationally minded, framing a curriculum that promotes multilingualism, intercultural understanding and global engagement.

Approaches to teaching and learning, a unifying thread throughout all MYP subject groups, are skills which help students manage their own learning. They provide a foundation for success in further education and the world beyond the classroom. ?

Action and service, essential components of the MYP, set out clear learning outcomes that grow from students’ participation in local and global communities. MYP projects are informed by respected models of service learning and provide stepping stones toward the Diploma Programme’s core requirements for Creativity, Action and Service (CAS).

The personal project, for students completing the programme?in year 5, is a culminating experience in which students apply their approaches to learning skills to complete an extended, self-directed piece of work. This required component provides opportunities for creative and truly personal demonstrations of learning.

When we moved to India and considered few schools for my kids (Sindhu & Vivek Nadipalli), I had a hard time to decide which is the right school for them. I compared Sreenidhi with some other top schools, and decided to admit them in Sreenidhi. Now I feel that I had taken a right decision to choose Sreenidhi, and never regretted about it. I wanted to tell you about it but never had an opportunity to do so. I thought it would be a good time to express my feedback since Sindhu is going to graduate and we lose ties with Sreenidhi. Reasons for appreciation:

1. All the teaching and non-teaching staff are very professional, and take care of the students like their own kids, and take care of the parents like special guests.

 

2. In case of any information or help, it's instant and accurate.

 

3. Teachers are very friendly and proficient in their subjects.

 

4. Open door policy. Somebody could come directly and see any of the staff member without any appointment.

 

5. Very considerable. Especially, Santosh sir and Shanmugam sir.

 

Vivek has completed his 10th grade from Sreenidhi International, and now he's studying six year Medicine program in Youngstown State University in Ohio, US. He says that he misses the school.

 

After Sindhu's 8th Grade we wanted to move Sindhu to a different school because of the commuting from our home. She strongly resisted to move from Sreenidhi. That shows how much she loves her school and what she is doing at the school.

Once I needed something from you and I contacted Santosh sir. Sanotsh sir got it done within no time, and I submitted that letter to the US Institution. Unfortunately, the Institution wanted in a different format. It repeated several times but you both never showed your frustration, and cooperated through the end process. I have no more words to say about Sreenidhi but we are going to miss it once Sindhu graduates. Sorry to lose the connection with you all. Especially, Santosh sir Shanmugam sir and Saraswathi madam.

 

Please keep up good work.

 

Yours sincerely,

Upender Nadipalli
