International Baccalaureate (IB - MYP) Transition

About IB - MYP Transition

Summer Learning International Baccalaureate (IB - MYP) Transition is designed for students transitioning from grade 7 into grade 8 at an IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) who have a desire to begin the transition to the MYP early.

It is designed for students who may be tentative or nervous about the transition and need advanced and increased orientation. This course provides an opportunity to expose students to the secondary school setting through the lens of the MYP curriculum, such as the IB Learner Profile, Key Concepts, Approaches to Learning skills, and criterion based assessment, in order to support greater success in grade 8 and beyond.

The nature of the course will be experiential; students will work in a variety of environments on various learning engagements to develop skills and gain confidence for an MYP high school. This course is suitable for students who will be entering Grade 8 in September at an MYP secondary school (as opposed to a Mainstream or French immersion program).
