Middle Years Programme
HIS MYP students become confident collaborators
Students in Grades 6-10 at Hangzhou International School follow the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP). For our students, this rigorous and wholistic approach is ideal preparation for the Diploma Programme, as it develops the knowledge and skills that will be essential for success in their final years at school. Teachers plan their units of work around the Key and Related Concepts and make connections to Global Contexts in order to ensure that student leaning is wide ranging, conceptual, integrated, and highly relevant. Inquiry questions guide the units to ensure that students are not simply fed information but learn to seek out answers for themselves. Our students learn skills and strategies in self-management, critical thinking, communicating, research, and collaborating throughout the curriculum at HIS and in lessons specially designed to develop these Approaches to Learning.
HIS Middle Years students become confident collaborators and communicators during their time with us, with ample opportunities for performance, community service, leadership, and project-based learning, both in and out of lessons.
