MYP Core

  • The Personal Project

    What is the MYP Personal Project?

    The final component of the IB MYP programme is the Personal Project at the end of the 10th grade year. The project is designed to be a culminating task to showcase your ability to learn on your own and utilize the skills you’ve been learning and practicing as an IBMYP student. Please sign below after reading the expectations and then feel free to attend our IB Parent 101 Nights for more information about MYP!

  • Create Something Personal

    This project asks you to create a product, outcome, or event that is personal for you, represents your goals, and is appropriately challenging for you! This could really be almost anything! But it should show you dedicated about 20 hours of your sophomore year in producing something that was a personal challenge.

    • Build my own skateboard
    • Learn to decorate cakes
    • Start a campus fitness group
    • Turn my poetry into music
    • Research my family tree

    For What Purpose?

    • Challenging yourself
    • Inquiring about how to solve problems from your own life
    • Practice planning long term goals
    • Justifying and communicating your goals
    • Practicing IB skills like investigating, communicating, collaborating, planning and organizing
  • Service Reflections

    See the Assessments & Fees page for information on how Service Reflections are graded. Students are expected to complete a minimum of 10 reflections between their 9th and 10th grade year. It is suggested that students complete at least six in their 9th grade year as a substantial amount of time will be spent on Personal Projects during their 10th grade year.
