IB Middle Years Programme (MYP)
HMS offers an IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) to all students. This is a way of looking at the way your child learns, thinks, and shares his or her knowledge.
The aim of all IB programmes is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
