The Middle Years Programme Certificate class

The Middle Years Program Certificate class offers an enriching educational experience tailored to students pursuing the MYP (Middle Years Programme) certificate.

In our MYP Certificate class, we are dedicated to fostering academic excellence, personal growth, and holistic development. Our curriculum is thoughtfully designed to meet the requirements and standards of the MYP, providing students with a well-rounded education that prepares them for future success.

Our experienced and passionate learning facilitators and teachers guide students through a comprehensive range of subjects, including language and literature, sciences, mathematics, humanities, arts, and physical education. They employ interactive teaching methods, encourage critical thinking, and promote inquiry-based learning to stimulate intellectual curiosity and develop essential skills.

At the Hawthorn Small School, we value the importance of fostering independent and reflective learners. Through the MYP’s Approaches to Learning (ATL) skills, students acquire vital tools such as research, communication, collaboration, and self-management, which are essential for their academic and personal journeys.

In our MYP certificate class, we cultivate an inclusive and supportive community. We encourage open-mindedness, respect for diverse perspectives, and active engagement in discussions. Students are provided with opportunities to explore real-world connections, engage in service learning projects, and participate in extracurricular activities that align with their interests and passions.

The small class size enables personalised attention and meaningful student-teacher/learning facilitator relationships. Our teachers and learning facilitators serve as mentors, offering guidance, support, and individualized feedback to help students achieve their academic goals and reach their fullest potential.

The presence of a full time learning facilitator ensures that students have a consistent, trusted adult within the class who is able to act both as their supporter and advocate should they require support to express their needs.

Overall, the MYP Certificate class provides a nurturing and academically rigorous environment where students can thrive and flourish. We are committed to empowering our students to become lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and compassionate global citizens, preparing them to make meaningful contributions to the world around them.
