International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program

Windfields Middle School is fully authorized to teach levels 1, 2, and 3 of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program.

The IB Middle Years Program is specially designed for students aged 11- 16.  Through it, we encourage international awareness, and emphasize skills, attitudes and knowledge needed to prepare our students to participate actively and responsibly in an increasingly global society.

The IB MYP five Areas of Interaction provide a central focus to help students and teachers develop and understand connections between their subject areas and the real world. Students also participate in five enriching, special activity days during the year, based on the Areas of Interaction: Community and Service, Approaches to Learning, Health and Social Education, Human Ingenuity, and Environment.

Teachers in the IB MYP play a critical role in curriculum development. They regularly participate in Common Planning Time periods and collaborate in developing their subject area, as well as links between subject areas. Windfields students may apply to the IB Diploma Program offered at Victoria Park Secondary School if they wish to continue in the International Baccalaureate.
