Welcome to the ISB International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program!
ISB is a full IB World School that has, as do other international schools, a highly transient student body. We strongly believe that the three IB programs fully meet diverse needs of both international students and their host country peers. We are proud to be able to offer the MYP continuum to our PYP students as they transition to the next chapter in their education. We also prepare our MYP students throughout these years with the skills and concepts they will need to be successful Diploma Program students in their final two years of high school.
The written, taught and learnt curriculum at ISB during the MYP years is a demanding, student centered, engaging, and balanced international curriculum, which incorporates all the attributes of the IB learner profile (which are personal characteristics identified by the IB to help students develop the attributes associated with success throughout their IB education and as lifelong learners). The school years from grades 6 – 10 are full of change, growth, and transitions, which is all the more reason for highlighting the importance of a balanced approach to their education.

The ISB was first authorized for the MYP in 2006, and was again successfully evaluated in April 2011, as well as in April 2016.
