Junior Secondary School – MYP Programme
Age: 11 to 16 years
Our Junior Secondary School students at EtonHouse International School Nanjing work within the framework of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP). The MYP programme encourages students to be creative, critical and reflective thinkers. Our school believes that students need to be active in their learning. This is achieved by challenging our students to develop skills and attributes that will make them successful in future academic programmes and in their life beyond school.
Our Junior Secondary School Programme
The following best describes our goals for the MYP programme at EtonHouse Nanjing:
– Stimulate student inquiry that targets the learner profiles;
– Provide a student centred inquiry-based environment;
– Prepare students to be life-long learners in a dynamic world;
– Encourage awareness and responsibility for student’s own learning;
– Support higher order thinking skills and deeper understanding;
– Promote positive interaction between students and educators.
Our approach to assessment is through the utilisation of IB best-practices and international perspectives that will give our parents, students and teachers clear feedback on progress, understanding, skills, and knowledge. Students and parents are kept up-to-date throughout the year on their child’s progress, across all subject areas, through unit reports, semester reports, unit newsletters, conferences, portfolios, open days and self-assessment and peer assessment reflections.
Students in our MYP programme cover a comprehensive range of subject areas:
– Language and Literature (English and Mandarin);
– Language Acquisition (English and Mandarin);
– Individuals and Societies;
– General Science;
– Visual Arts;
– Physical, Social and Health Education;
Our range of subjects offers a comprehensive exploration of different fields through an inquiry approach. In Grade 10, each student will engage in a personal project that allows them to demonstrate the understandings and skills they have developed throughout the programme.
