SISD to launch bilingual middle years programme in 2016January 26, 2016, 5:37 am GMT
The Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai (SISD) will launch its Middle Years Programme - offering Grades 6-9 - during the 2016/17 academic year.
The International Baccalaureate MYP curriculum features eight subject groups with a core approach to teaching, learning, service, action, and projects for students aged 11-16 years.
SISD head of middle school Luke Osborne said: "We're excited about the opportunities afforded to students, parents and teachers by the IB's new eAssessments in the MYP. The only viable option for a truly international and bilingual Middle School programme has just gotten even better with an emphasis on rigour, validity and transparency. Once again, the IB is leading the way in providing qualifications tailored to the needs of tomorrow's global citizen."
Students in the primary section will spend 50% of their time studying in English, and 50% studying in either French or German. Later, certain subjects will be taught through these languages. Students who follow the bilingual programme are able to qualify for the Bilingual IB MYP Certificate initially, and later, the Bilingual IB Diploma.
As part of the next educational phase, the school will introduce the Swiss Baccalaureate – a qualification which will afford access to top Swiss and European universities.
