Discover a school where learning is personal.
Welcome to the Upper School.
At SJK, the IB Middle Years Programme
(MYP) resides in our Upper School, for students in Grades 7-10. The MYP is a broad student experience, a classroom with no walls, where students are encouraged to embrace the five core approaches to learning: Communication, Research, Social, Thinking and Self-Management. It is a programme where students discover ‘how to learn’ is as important as ‘what you learn’.
The MYP is a challenging framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world. The learning is inquiry-based, hands-on, student-driven and personalized to the student’s educational journey. The breadth of experience is achieved, in part, through the connected IB curriculum, but that is only part of the story. Co-curricular programming, experiences beyond the classroom, leadership opportunities, community engagement and engaging with the arts all adds to the student experience.
