Following the PYP level, children progress to the Middle Years Programme (MYP) which is an excellent platform to prepare for the upcoming Diploma Programme in Grade 11 and 12. MYP spans from Grades 6 to 10. The syllabus is designed to meet all the educational needs of children at this crucial stage. Students follow a broad curriculum with primary emphasis on the following eight subjects:

  • Literature and Language
  • Language Acquisition
  • Sciences
  • Mathematics
  • Design
  • Arts
  • Individuals and Societies
  • Physical and Health Education 

With the help of proper planning and the teacher’s involvement, children are encouraged to adopt an application-based approach to learning, enabling them to correlate their study material to real-world situations. Such an approach supports children in the development of the skills needed to manage and understand the complexities of this world.

Learning and teaching for MYP at GEMS World Academy is based on the understanding that a student can learn better when the learning process is: 

  • Collaborative, challenging, engaging, rigorous, significant and relevant
  • Accommodating children with diverse needs
  • Properly structured, making students feel secure about sharing ideas
  • A supportive environment with an appropriate feedback mechanism

The IB Diploma Programme is meant to challenge ambitious students and prepare them for higher studies. University-bound students often choose an intensive program that requires a high level of preparation from the students with the support of inputs from teachers, which makes this module widely recognised by international institutions.

Since 2012, the International Baccalaureate Curriculum Programme (IBCP) has offered flexible options to students. It allows them to pursue education while gaining professional skills required at the workplace. These career-related programmes at GEMS World Academy provide alternative pathways for students seeking a pragmatic educational pathway while receiving an IB education.

This new programme, launched in September 2018, focuses on students in their early childhood years. The programme comes with one dismissal time for all at 01:15 pm but there are options to extend this till 02:50 pm if parents opt for the Extended Care Programme. For more informationclick here.
