At a time when students are defining their identity and building their self-esteem, the MYP offers a unique design that provides them with a well-rounded education and helps them achieve the best results in school and in life.


Inquiry-based, concept-driven curriculum

MYP students reflect on important ideas, rather than simply memorizing facts to prepare for exams. As a result, they develop learning skills that will serve them well over the course of an independent, purposeful life.

Students who complete the MYP are adequately prepared to meet the academic requirements of secondary education. Research shows that MYP students have the solid foundation to take the IB Diploma Program (DP).

THE IB Middle Years Programme (MYP)

Education for a better world

International training

The fundamental objective of the programs of the Gimnasio del Norte is to train internationally minded people who, aware of the condition that unites them as human beings and the responsibility they share to watch over the planet, contribute to creating a better and more peaceful world.

Research support

The MYP never remains static. Our programs and curricula evolve and undergo periodic reviews to ensure we provide the best possible education to our students. Our vision is constantly being reshaped through research.

Focus on students

They are taught to think for themselves and to be architects of their own learning process, this represents a constant stimulus. A lot of our former students and their parents, who become our ambassadors, spread our message in the most eloquent way possible: by having their own children study at Gimnasio del Norte School.

MYP students at the Gimnasio del Norte are actively involved in their school, in their local community and worldwide. It becomes a lifestyle that allows them to feel faithful to their immediate environment while still thinking about the rest of the world.
