Carson Graham Secondary
North Vancouver School District
The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP)


Carson Graham is proud to offer the MYP to all students in grades 8-10.  This program that aims to help students develop their personal understanding, their emerging sense of self and responsibility in their community while challenging them to embrace and understand the connections between traditional subjects and the real world.

The MYP is an inquiry based program; students inquire into issues and ideas of personal, local and global significance through concepts that have relevance within specific disciplines and across subjects. All students in grades eight to ten study the Ministry of BC Curriculum through an MYP lens in 8 curricular areas: Arts, Design, Individuals and Societies, Language Acquisition: French, Spanish or Squamish, Language and Literature: English, Mathematics, Physical and Health Education, Sciences.

The Approaches to learning (ATL) are a unifying thread throughout all MYP subjects.  The ATL provide the foundation for independent learning and encourage the application of their knowledge and skills in unfamiliar contexts. Developing and applying these social, thinking, research, communication and self management skills helps students learn how to learn.

Students are expected to develop their character by engaging in a minimum 30 hours of thoughtful Service as Action through community service. Students also complete the Personal Project on a topic of their choice through which they have the opportunity to demonstrate their growth as learners and global citizens.
