From Year 6, Red House International School adopts the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) in Sao Paulo, a challenging program, geared toward students between 11 and 16 years of age, that encourages practical connections between school and the real world. With a large and traditional knowledge base, the MYP encourages students to be creative, critical and reflective.
Intercultural understanding, global engagement and communication skills are seen as essential elements for education in the 21 century, and are considered fundamentals to our philosophy. Within this context, the MYP promotes a integrative view of learning.
The program requires a teaching and learning approach that includes and extends the traditional school subjects. Based on the knowledge, skills and attitudes acquired in the PYP, the program prepares students to meet the academic challenges of the IB Diploma Programme in Year 11 and Year 12.
