• Candidate School for the International Baccalaureate (IB)

    Middle Years Programme

    Southridge Tech Middle School is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme and pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high-quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.

    In short, the achievement of MYP candidacy means that we will be working with an IB consultant as well as our District IB Implementation team to take actions necessary to fulfill the International Bacclaureate® (IB) requirements for authorization. During our candidacy phase, we will:

    • begin trial implementation of the programme that will last no less than one academic year 
    • attend specified IB-recognized professional development activities 
    • publicize its status as a candidate school, using language provided by the IB 
    • work with our assigned consultant--who has been fully trained according to global IB policies.
