The ISL Qatar MYP Curriculum Guide, 2015-2016 is intended to provide you with an overview of the curriculum and learning opportunities available at the International School of London, Qatar over the five years of the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP). The years of the MYP, from Grades 6 through 10, are a critical period in the development of young people, and their success in school is related closely to their personal, social and emotional well-being. At a time when students are establishing identity and building self-esteem, the MYP provides an established framework that can motivate students and help them to achieve success. The MYP compliments the school’s commitment to the IB Diploma and ISL Qatar High School Diploma in Grades 11 and 12. The Primary Years Programme (PYP) is undertaken by students from the Early Childhood years to Grade 5 and students move from one programme to the next without any gap years. With its broad and balanced curriculum, the MYP allows students to build on personal strengths and to embrace the challenges in a variety of subjects. The students have opportunities to develop their potential, to explore their own learning preferences, to take appropriate and well-considered risks and to reflect on and develop a strong sense of personal identity.
