The MYP English programme is a vertically aligned syllabus provided by Springboard that encourages all students in grades 6-10 to develop and refine skills in critical thinking, close reading, writing in various genres, and doing research.
Over the course of the programme, they read and analyze a wide range of texts in genres including poetry, novels, plays, biographies, nonfiction narratives, speeches, and films. They also learn to write in forms including essays, personal narratives, argumentative texts such as editorials, and research papers.
The MYP course is designed to encourage students to apply their mathematical knowledge in solving abstract problems as well as those set in a variety of meaningful contexts.
In grade 6 to 8 general such as numbers skills, shape and measurements, and statistics are focused on. In grade 9 and 10, students take Algebra, and Geometry as designed by TEKS curriculum. The course recognizes the need for analytical expertise in a world where innovation is increasingly dependent on a deep understanding of mathematics. The focus is on developing important mathematical concepts in a comprehensible, coherent and rigorous way, achieved by a carefully balanced approach.
The MYP curriculum is designed with the aim of opening the door of discovery and fostering a lifelong interest in seeking the truth about our world. We cover many topics from Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Earth Science in order to give students the broadest knowledge base. Scientific Inquiry skills pervade every topic as the students learn to manipulate variables and perform safe and valid investigations.
MYP students have a wide variety of I&S courses to choose from. For students who want the challenge of a college level class, we offer AP World History and AP Human Geography, where students are able to earn university credits in Grade 9 and 10. For students who require English support, we offer differentiated classes with appropriate linguistic scaffolding. BIS follows the Texas State Standards and offers unique courses such as Model United Nations, Business/Economics/Entrepreneurship, and Speech & Debate. The wide array of options can meet the needs of all students to prepare them for the DP and tertiary education.
