    Why choose an MYP school for your child?

    The MYP teaches tools for lifelong learning and fosters responsible attitudes that help students discover how to use what they learn to take principled action. The MYP includes:
    • rigorous learning objectives
    • a student-centered approach to teaching
    • international perspectives
    • concern for the whole child
    • sustained teaching and learning in more than one language
    • a focus on learning how to learn
    • the development of flexible thinking that prepares students to evaluate information critically and apply knowledge in complex, unfamiliar situations.
    In the MYP, students study 8 subject groups, with a minimum of 50 teaching hours per subject group each year. Distinctive features of the MYP include:
    • key and related concepts
    • global contexts
    • approaches to teaching and learning
    • action and service
    • The personal project (completed at North Atlanta High School, in the tenth grade)
    The MYP's focus on independent learning makes it the ideal preparation for the IB Diploma Programme (DP) and the IB Career-related Programme (CP). In addition to the culmination of the MYP, North Atlanta offers the Diploma Programme (DP) and is currently in the authorization phase for the Career-related Programme (CP).
