International Baccalaureate®Middle Years Programme (MYP)


OTR International School is an authorized school for the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Middle Years Programme (students aged 11-15).


We welcome the opportunity for prospective students and their parents to visit OTR International School and learn more about our philosophy.

The Middle Years programme is an inclusive programme for our students in the lower secondary cycle offering a challenging framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world.


 The MYP aims to develop students who are:

  • Active learners
  • Internationally minded
  • Able to empathize with others
  • Have the intellect and skills to pursue lives of purpose and meaning.

As part of the IB continuum, the MYP is designed to help students develop the characteristics of the IB learner profile ( https://www.ibo.org/benefits/learner-profile/ )


It offers students opportunities to:


  • develop their potential
  • explore their own learning preferences
  • take appropriate risks
  • reflect on, and develop, a strong sense of personal identity.                                                                                                                                                                     

At a time when students are establishing their identity and building their self-esteem, the MYP can motivate students and help them to achieve success in school and in life beyond the classroom.
