Middle Years (MYP)

Although the foundation for learning is still provided by the National Curriculum, the MYP curriculum is enhanced by international content standards, IB framework and the IB MYP approaches to teaching and learning Methods of the International Baccalaureate program.

The IB MYP program is globally recognized and implemented by many schools in various countries. This program not only helps students acquire solid academic knowledge but also helps them develop comprehensively in terms of skills and personal qualities.

The program is designed to encourage students to develop critical thinking, explore interdisciplinary knowledge, and build the necessary skills for lifelong learning. The program is taught over 5 years, from Grade 6 to Grade 10.

06 IB Global Contexts

The academic environment has a more traditional format found in most middle and high schools, while also encouraging students to become independent learners and apply their knowledge and skills in new and unfamiliar contexts. The goal is to develop the social, academic, research, communication, and self-management skills necessary for students to learn how to learn.

A common thread to every MYP are the 06 IB Global Contexts:

1. Identity & Relationships

2. Orientation in space and time

3. Personal & Cultural expression

4. Scientific & Technical innovation

5. Globalization & Sustainability

6. Fairness & Development

06 Subject Groups

Students begin learning in an environment where most subjects are taught in English to help prepare them for the challenging Diploma Programme (DP) in high school.

The MYP framework is comprised of eight subject groups:

1. Language acquisition (English)

2. Language and literature (Vietnamese)

3. Individuals and societies

4. Science

5. Mathematics

6. Arts

7. Physical and health education

8. Design

Each subject is closely linked to these themes. Additionally, the Middle Years Programme (MYP) requires an integrated unit each school year, where students must demonstrate their understanding by synthesizing perspectives from different content areas.

Community & Personal Project

At Tesla, the MYP obtains at least from 54 to 108 hours of teaching time for each subject group to provide students with a well-rounded experience, but in order for students to meet the National Curriculum’s requirements the core academic subjects are taught every day throughout the year.

The final two years of the program are when students participate together in a Community Project. At the end of Grade 10, students will complete a final Personal Project that reflects their entire learning journey.
