Welcome to the Stony Point IB Middle Years Programme
Stony Point High School is a candidate school* for the Middle Years Programme for 9th and 10th grades. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy –a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education– that we believe is important for our students.
* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Program (MYP) is a curriculum framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world. The MYP generates a stimulating, challenging learning environment which nurtures inquiry, action, and reflection. The program, which starts in the sixth grade and continues through 10th grade, is intended to prepare students for the Diploma Programme (DP) or other rigorous, advanced academic pathways. Therefore, it provides academic challenge and develops life skills in order to motivate students and help them achieve success in school and in life beyond the classroom.
