The Global Contexts act as a lens for inquiry in the MYP. Through these contexts, we can develop international mindedness and global engagement in our students, and they can act as an inspiration for service and projects. These Global Contexts demonstrate a connection between the Middle Years Programme and Odyssey’s Core Values. Scholars learn across eight subject areas concurrently, developing strong disciplinary knowledge through their subjects. They apply and strengthen this through occasional interdisciplinary units, in which scholars learn and are assessed across different subject groups.
MYP asks that all instruction be relevant, real-world, inquiry-based and goal-oriented. Teachers at Odyssey design unit plans that incorporate inquiry questions, conceptual learning, and real world application. The MYP philosophy encourages scholars to reflect on their growth as a learner throughout the program.
