KAS Middle Years Program

KAS was authorized to offer the IB Middle Years Program beginning in November 2015. Our decision to offer the IB MYP reflects our belief that the program offers the best opportunities for our students’ learning. The MYP is a program for all students. According to the IBO, the “MYP encourages students aged 11 to 16 to make practical connections between their studies and the real world, preparing them for success in further study and in life.”

The links below include MYP Parent Presentations as well as links to the MYP rubrics in all subject areas. If you have questions, please feel free to contact our IB MYP Coordinator and MS Principal, M. Daryl Imanishi at dimanishi@kas.tw.

The Middle Years Programme consists of eight areas of study. Subject areas include:

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

KAS implements the MYP beginning in Grade 6. Once students start the MYP, they will continue the MYP through Grade 10 (year 5 of MYP). By the school year 2016-2017, all students in grades 6-10 will be a part of the MYP at KAS.
