Middle Years (6-10)

Middle Years Programme

Gyeonggi Suwon International School is authorized with the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB-MYP).  We follow the IB-MYP curriculum in grades 6 to 10.  The IB-MYP is an international education program that emphasizes the inter-relatedness of subjects and prepares students to become responsible participants in a changing world.  The fundamental concepts of the program are holistic learning, intercultural awareness and communication.

The IB-MYP emphasizes critical thinking and learning how to learn as opposed to simply learning facts.  It is a student centered curriculum model in which the student is at the center of learning and teaching.  Further, the IB-MYP model focuses on 8 subject  areas: 2 Languages, humanities, technology, mathematics, arts, sciences, and physical education.

GSIS aims to develop internationally minded students who, recognizing our common humanity and shared  guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.  Students who are:

Inquirers / Knowledgeable / Thinkers / Communicators / Principled / Open-minded / Caring / Risk-takers / Balanced / Reflective

*Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) as IB World Schools can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme.
