IB Middle Years Program (IB MYP) at Highland Park Senior High School

  • IB MYP Overview

    Highland Park Senior High is an authorized International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (IB MYP) School.  The IB MYP is a rigorous international program that is student-centered as it builds on what students know (constructivism) and actively involves them in their own learning.  Students are asked to pursue open-ended inquiry and real-life investigations both locally and globally.  IB MYP is for all students in grades 9 and 10.  It will be an eventful year as students will continue to see the collaboration that took place during the last several years by the teachers put into action. Teachers implement common assessments and common units, and will continue to create more.  Students will continue to focus on the IB Learner Profile (a list of learner qualities), as well as, the Global Contexts (lens which to view content).  Our 10th graders also engage in the IB MYP Personal Project. 

    We look forward to another year of collaboration among our staff and also with Highland Park Middle School. We appreciate your continued support of our IB Program.

    Students are introduced to the Personal Project in the spring of 9th grade by attending a Personal Project Showcase, attending a class presentation, and working in class to research and brainstorm ideas for their project. Students will work on the project and journals during the fall and winter of 10th grade.  Students are also strongly encouraged to begin work on the project and journals during the summer between 9thgrade and 10th grade.  Students will complete the paper during the winter of 10th grade and present their projects, journals, and in the winter of 10th grade during the Personal Project Showcase.  Please click on the tab on the right hand side for more information about the Personal Project and contact the Personal Project Leader, Kim Sabo (kimberly.sabo@spps.org) with any questions.
