At Lincoln IB World Middle School, every student is an International Baccaluareate Middle Years Programme (IBMYP) student!
The IBMYP is an educational programme that provides students with discipline, skills and challenging standards, but also with creativity and flexibility. The IBMYP was designed so that students could "develop a personal value system by which to guide their own lives, as thoughtful members of local communities and the larger world. " (www.ibo.org)
The IBMYP model embodies three fundamental concepts:
- Communication - valuing language acquisition in at least two languages,
- Holistic learning- finding the connections across and within the subjects and grade levels
- Internationalism - a growing understanding of a student’s own culture coupled with an understanding and appreciation of other cultures.
