International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Program (MPY)

El Roble Intermediate and Claremont High School are candidate schools* for the MYP. These schools are pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.

* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes visit




MYP is a framework that organizes state and national curriculum into a consistent format. The aim is to ensure that students are not only knowledgeable about many subject areas, but also develop a genuine understanding and an ability to apply these concepts in new contexts, in preparation for further learning.

State and national objectives and standards are the springboard to inquiry-based teaching and learning. Units begin with engaging questions that answer the questions How do I learn best? Why do I have to learn this? What is the long term impact?The MYP philosophy fosters intercultural awareness within units of study.

As students mature and develop higher-order thinking skills, they explore the disciplines in increasing depth and realize how those disciplines are linked to each other and to local and global issues.
