International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC)

The International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC) responds specifically to the needs of 11 to 14 year olds by providing independence and interdependence in their learning through discrete subject learning and themes, encouraging learning that help them make connections that are relevant to their own lives. It involves active, skills-based learning, promotes self-reflection and the opportunity for students to make sense of their learning. The hallmark of the IMYC is the step-by step integration of a “Big Idea” into core curriculum that creates an interdisciplinary learning experience for students.
