International Baccalaureate

The International Baccalaureate programme, commonly referred to as the IB, is a student-centered pedagogy that aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who strive to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding. IB programmes also inspire students to become active, compassionate, lifelong learners capable of making connections that promote learning across academic disciplines. Because the IB learner profile prizes global citizenship as much as it does rigor, creativity and critical thinking, students can cultivate their global awareness and responsibility as they acquire the international educational mindset and 21st century skills needed not only to be accepted to, but to thrive in the best universities that will shape their futures. Approaches to teaching and learning are included in the inner circle, demonstrating the IB’s commitment to particular pedagogical approaches to teaching and to developing particular skills for learning.


The ib learner profile

The aim of all IB programmes is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world. - IB

In MYP arts, students function as artists as well as learners of the arts. Artists have to be curious. By developing curiosity about themselves, others and the world, students become effective learners, inquirers and creative problem-solvers. Students create, perform and present arts in ways that engage and convey feelings, experiences and ideas. Through this practice, students acquire new skills and master those developed in prior learning.

Development in the arts is a dynamic process, and not necessarily linear. Students move freely through a creative process towards a deeper understanding of the arts. The process of creating artwork, as well as the product, demonstrates what students have experienced, learned and attempted to convey. - IB

At MDID, grades 7 & 8, all students are required to take the following course for a semester each:

  • Visual arts
