The PYP Exhibition is a chance for students to show off what they have learned throughout their years in PYP. Working collaboratively with classmates and a specialized teacher, students learn about a real life topic of their choosing. This fosters a sense of inquiry through the process and autonomy and agency in regards to their learning.
MYP Personal Project
Students completing year 5 of the MYP (grade 10) spend a full year on this project. They choose a topic of personal interest to learn more about and create a product or outcome based on their learning. This project has three main components: the process, the product, and the report. Students show their learning through the creation of their product and write a report showing how this process helped them to grow in aspects of ATL skills and as a learner overall.
