Curriculum and Programmes

Genius School has a highly balanced curriculum which has been carefully designed in line with our national curriculum under the IB PYP and MYP framework. Aligned with the IB philosophy, our curriculum is engaging, relevant, challenging and significant from both local and global perspective. Learning at Genius School does not only come from the prescribed curriculum but also from students’ curiosity, pressing current issues, teachers’ rigorous researches, the nature around us and the demands faced in the immediate surrounding. The school’s curriculum and pedagogy promotes development of skills and values and exploration of both local and global cultures with the objective of encouraging greater international-mindedness.

International Baccalaureate Programmes

Genius School is an accredited school for International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP) and a candidate school for the Middle Years Programme (IBMYP)

IBPYP is the curriculum framework designed for students aged 3 to 12. It is an enquiry based learning programme guided by 6 trans-disciplinary themes of global significance in connection with 6 different subject areas helping to develop conceptual understanding by using knowledge and skills to develop values that help them contribute to the world as responsible global citizens.

The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme is an educational framework designed for the students aged 12-16, typically in grades VI to X. It aims to provide a comprehensive and holistic learning experience that promotes intellectual, personal, social, and emotional development. The IBMYP is recognized and respected worldwide for its rigorous academic standards and emphasis on fostering critical thinking, inquiry-based learning, and intercultural understanding.

At the core of the IBMYP are eight subject groups: Language and Literature, Language Acquisition, Individuals and Societies, Sciences, Mathematics, Arts, Physical and Health Education, and Design. These subject groups provide a balanced curriculum that encourages students to explore various disciplines and develop a broad range of skills.

The IBMYP provides a comprehensive and balanced education that prepares students for further studies in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) or other educational pathways. It nurtures students’ intellectual, personal, and social growth, equipping them with the skills and mindset needed to thrive in an increasingly interconnected and diverse world.

In addition to the subject groups, the IBMYP incorporates a unique framework called Approaches to Learning (ATL). ATL focuses on developing key skills such as communication, research, self-management, social skills, and critical thinking. These skills are integrated into the curriculum, enabling students to become independent, reflective learners who can apply their knowledge in real-world contexts.

 Both the PYP and the MYP help children become caring, independent learners who are capable of thinking for themselves and taking responsibility of their own learning. 

One of the most important features of the IB PYP and MYP Programme is the exploration of areas that have global significance that create opportunity for children to stretch the width and depth of knowledge to develop better understanding of human, physical and non-physical world around them.
