MYP and World Language
In grade 6, MYP students experience a world language carousel. After that, students choose a world language to study over the course of their remaining MYP experience (through 10th grade). The IB MYP guidance encourages students to stick with the language they choose for 7th grade, all the way through senior year of high school. All MYP students, except those who have an IEP or 504 that precludes studying a world language, must be offered the opportunity to study a world language as part of the 8 core MYP subjects at GMS and the 6 core MYP subjects at FHS.
