Welcome to the East Middle School MYP Programme
In April, 2019, East Middle School was approved as a Candidate School for the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme. This is the first stage in the authorization process to become an MYP World School. Starting in September 2019 we will begin incorporating MYP in to our curriculum, classroom activities, and the culture of learning for all of East Middle School.
As the Coordinator of this programme, it is my responsibility to facilitate this process, support our students, their families and our staff as we begin this journey. Prior to coming to East in September 2018, I was the Coordinator of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme at Harrison High School. It has been a very successful program and will continue at Farmington High School this fall. For more information on the IB Diploma Programme, here is the link: https://www.farmington.k12.mi.us/ib
Wood Creek Elementary School will be going through the authorization phase in 2019-2020. For more information, here is the link: https://www.farmington.k12.mi.us/wck

At the core of all IB Programmes is the learner profile, 10 attributes fostered in students that promote their development as responsible members of their local, national and global communities. IB learners strive to be inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced and reflective.
