International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP)
The MYP is designed for students aged 11 to 16. It provides a framework of learning which encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. The MYP emphasizes intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and to the real world. It fosters the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement, qualities that are essential for life in the 21st century.
BGHS is an IB Middle Years Program School authorized in December 2013. All students attending Barry Goldwater High School belong to the IB Middle Years Program.
