All students in Grades 9 and 10 are enrolled in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP), as a part of the IB Continuum at SAIS. As MYP students, our Grade 10s have the option to register for the MYP Certificate or MYP Courses to enhance their HS diploma. Throughout the programme our students engage in contexts and approaches to learning as a tool for academic success. Our Grade 10 students celebrate this understanding through the completion of the Personal Project (the culminating project of the MYP) and Service as Action components of the MYP Core. Successful students receive the IB MYP Personal Project Certificate.
At Stamford, our Grade 10 students have the option to choose the flexible MYP pathway (MYP Flex) and choose one (1) AP course within their student schedule. This allows students to continue learning in the MYP while beginning to explore options for flexible pathway options in Grades 11 and 12.
