Middle Years Programme
The Aga Khan Academy Mombasa is authorised by the International Baccalaureate (IB) to offer the Middle Years Programme (MYP) for students in years 6–10.
The Academy is the only school in Mombasa and one of two in Kenya to offer the full range of IB programmes from year 1 to university entrance. We offer the IB Middle Years Programme as part of an integrated curriculum that includes the Primary Years Programme (years 1–5) and the Diploma Programme (years 11–12).
The MYP covers a study of the major disciplines, including:
- social sciences
- physical education.
The five Aga Khan Curricular Strands, which are unique to the Aga Khan Academies, are integrated throughout the curriculum.
Learning through the MYP
Our MYP students are immersed in a challenging and enriching educational environment. We ensure that they master basic skills, develop the ability to analyse and think critically, and become computer literate. We also emphasise the development of self-discipline and good work habits.
The programme encourages students to reflect on their learning and make connections with real world issues. It also helps students develop an awareness of their thought processes and learning strategies, and of how they learn best.
The MYP includes a service component that makes students aware of community and global needs. We also ensure that each student receives a strong leadership experience and grounding in ethics, which helps prepare them for future leadership roles. The final performance of our MYP students is assessed by teams of teachers and is validated by the IB through a monitoring process that ensures the high standards of IB schools worldwide.
