MYP is a challenging framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world, the MYP is inclusive by design; students of all interests and academic abilities can benefit from their participation.
The goal of MYP at D.M.Therrell is to offer students opportunities to:
• develop their potential
• explore their own learning preferences
• take appropriate risks
• reflect on, and develop, a strong sense of personal identity.
The six subject group offerings at D.M. Therrell are:
1. Individuals and Society
2. Language Acquisition
3. Language and Literature
5. Performing Arts
Besides rigorous classroom instruction, students will be required to complete a personal project in their year 5. The purpose of the personal project is to enable students to engage in practical explorations through a cycle of inquiry, action, and reflection.
In the fall of 2019, D.M.Therrell High School will be in the candidacy phase for the Diploma Programme (DP). By the year 2021, D.M.Therrell High School will be a fully authorized IB World School with three IB programmes – CP, MYP, and DP.
