Grades 6 to 8

The International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC) is a rigorous academic program designed around the critical needs of the adolescent brain. Our program has a holistic focus, with special attention paid to the development of students' personal dispositions and values of international mindedness. Aimed at inspiring and engaging students, units cover globally relevant themes such as development, discovery, entrepreneurship, and leadership.

Our Middle Years program offers most subjects in English, including: mathematics, science, English literature, humanities, art, music, and physical education. Two subjects— Vietnamese literature and culture and Vietnamese history, civics, and geography— are offered as part of the program in Vietnamese.
