The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme

The International Baccalaureate  Middle Years Programme (MYP) is a framework of learning which encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers.  The MYP emphasizes intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and to the real world. It fosters the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement, qualities that are essential for life in the 21st century.    
Elsie Roy, Lord Roberts and King George Secondary are the Downtown Family of Schools in which all students from grades 6-10 are part of the Middle Years Programme.


The iPad Project and Personalized Learning

The focus of personalized learning is to provide each individual a pathway to explore areas of learning that are based on personal passions. It means providing a more personalized learning experience centred on each person’s engagement, self-direction and self-management. At Elsie Roy Elementary, it means we all have the responsibility to understand and work with our community to allow each to learn what they can, the best way they can, and at the pace that s/he decides.

It is important to realize that this current effort
is not “for the iPad” but rather “because of the iPad”.
