Designed for younger adolescents in Grades 7 to 10, the Middle Years Programme (MYP) engages students in a liberal arts program that provides a solid platform for future studies in all disciplines.
The program also teaches students the essential skills for learning how to learn, as well as their own unique learning strengths and areas for growth.
The MYP focuses on the development of the whole girl, and it includes learning in Arts, Athletics, and developing skills and interests. MYP students also learn to take on leadership roles and community service activities.
Students study English, Mathematics, Sciences, Technology, Physical Education, the Arts (Drama, Music, Visual Art), humanities and a foreign language every year.
Students improve their critical-thinking skills, capacity for teamwork, work habits, independence and organizational abilities. By the end, they’re ready for Grades 11 and 12 and the IB Diploma Programme.
We wish to acknowledge this land on which Branksome operates. For thousands of years, it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work and go to school on this land.
