The programme addresses particular academic and social needs of students in this age group. Interlinking learning is important for the developing adolescent brain. The IMYC uses a specific process of learning (based on the way the brain learns) consistently across all subjects. This helps students with planning and organising. At Eerde we embrace this method, it provides the tools to address the needs of this specific age group. The IMYC provides the opportunity for students to be challenged in their individual learning as well as work cooperatively with peers.
The International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC) and Cambridge lower secondary are used in high schools, independent and international schools all over the world. At Eerde International Boarding School we have implemented both curriculums to offer the best of both educational systems.
