Middle school Grades 5-10

The programme which integrates Middle Years programme (IB MYP ) and Kazakhstani Educational Standards is designed for students aged 10-11 to 16 (Grade 5 -10).

MYP is a six years programme, it starts from MYP 0 (transfer year) for Grade 5 ends at MYP year5 for Grade 10. Grade 5 follows MYP 0 model based on the School integrated programme, adaptation to MYP programme and the acquaintance of MYP objectives. MYP 0 is serves as a preparation for MYP 1 in Grade 6, MYP year 1 objectives is modified for the year level of Grade 5 students.

This international programme is aimed at developing students' skills and knowledge to meet the requirements of modern society. Three Fundamental Concepts underpin the Middle Years Programme: holistic learning, intercultural awareness and communication.
The IB requires schools to teach a broad and balanced choice of subjects in every year of the programme. Curriculum guides published by the IB for every subject group, outline a framework of concepts and skills intended to provide direction and advice and ensure some worldwide commonality among MYP schools. MYP schools are required to structure their curriculum to allow students to achieve the aims and objectives of each subject group, confirmed by the IB in terms of final achievement at the end of the programme.
The subject areas are:
Language and Literature, the student's first language or language of instruction – English, Russian or Kazakh (taught in Grade 5-10)
Language Acquisition, an additional language(s) learnt at school – English, Russian, Kazakh and French
Sciences – taught as general science in Grade 5-7 and as three disciplines in Grades 8-10
Individuals and Societies
Physical and Health Education
Arts – Visual Arts, Music and Performing Arts

Subject content is organized around themes or perspectives called Global Contexts. They are designed to encourage the students to make worthwhile connections between the real world and classroom learning.

Teaching and learning in the MYP involves understanding concepts in context. Global contexts provide a common language for powerful contextual learning, identifying specific settings, events or circumstances that provide more concrete perspectives for teaching and learning.
The six MYP Global Contexts inspire explorations of our common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet. They invite reflection on local, national and global communities, as well as the real-life issues and concerns of 10 to 16-year-old students. For each MYP unit, teachers should identify one global context that establishes a focus for meaningful teaching and learning in a program of international education. Over the course of their study, students should encounter all six global contexts, which are Identities and relationships, Orientation in time and space, Personal and cultural expression, Scientific and technical innovation, Globalization and sustainability, and Fairness and development.
