Middle School 11-14 years old


Rich, comprehensive and international curriculum


IB secondary school


From the ages of 11 to 16, students at the International School of Milan follow the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IBMYP).

The Middle Years Programme of the International Baccalaureate encourages students to make links between their studies and the real world. Our IB programmes train our students to embrace a multicultural future. By nurturing a sense of responsibility, we encourage them to reach the highest standards in study and in life. 

Autonomy is the key that will enable students to apply what they have learned concretely and to evaluate the information they receive critically. 


Subject Groups

The Middle Years Programme (MYP) comprises eight subject groups:

  • Language acquisition
  • Language and literature
  • Individuals and societies
  • Sciences
  • Mathematics
  • Arts
  • Physical and health education
  • Design


Students learn best when their learning experiences have context and are connected to their lives and their experience of the world that they have experienced.

Using global contexts, students develop an understanding of their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet through developmentally appropriate explorations of:

  • identities and relationships
  • personal and cultural expression
  • orientations in space and time
  • scientific and technical innovation
  • fairness and development
  • globalization and sustainability.
