The MYP is designed for students aged 11 to 16 years. It provides a framework of learning that encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. The curriculum framework for MYP at GGS is challenging and contextualized. It provides learners opportunities to create real-life connections with the depth of the content and fosters the development of skills needed to apply the content. The curriculum is designed following the MYP framework, involving MYP teachers collaborating with PYP.
GGS was authorized to offer MYP in 2019.
