THE INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE PROGRAMME IN THE
GRANDE PRAIRIE PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICT
MIDDLE YEARS PROGRAM - Montrose Junior High School
All Montrose Junior High students in grades 7, 8, and 9 participate in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program. Students in the middle grades are face with a wide range of often confusing choices. The Middle Years Program (MYP) is designed to provide students with the values and knowledge that will help them to make good choices. From its beginning, the MYP has been guided by three fundamental concepts that are rooted in the IB mission statement. These three fundamental concepts are:
Holistic learning—representing the idea that all knowledge is interrelated and that the curriculum should promote the development of the whole person, whose attributes are described by the IB learner profile
Intercultural awareness—representing the idea that school communities should encourage and promote global thinking by engaging with and exploring other cultures, which is a key feature of international education evident in the IB learner profile
Communication—representing the idea that schools should encourage open and effective communication, important skills that contribute the international understanding as exemplified by the attributes of the IB Learner Profile.
