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.
