First: Introduction to the MYP Curriculum Model at IKNS
The MYP Curriculum Model comprises eight subject groups. These are:
- Language acquisition.
- Language and literature.
- Individuals and societies.
- Physical and health education.
The Eight Subject Groups
In each of the eight subject groups, the progress of students is assessed against four subject specific MYP criteria. (See Table 1 below)
While the eight subject groups are taught and assessed separately, students will have the opportunity to engage in one unit of study, yearly, that combines two or more subject groups - the Interdisciplinary Unit.
A Message from the Curriculum Coordinator
Dear IKNS Students and Parents,
According to the standard key indicators, IKNS continues to flourish: The MAP results of IKNS students in English, Mathematics, and Science in all three sections of the school (Elementary, Middle and Secondary) are in step with the rest of the world. Moreover, when it comes to IB Diploma Program (IBDP) results and university destinations, IKNS students consistently achieve excellent results and enroll in highly selective universities in the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States.
That is why our school has an excellent reputation in Bahrain; the BQA ranked it as ‘Outstanding,’ and MSA has granted it an unconditional accreditation.
