The Aga Khan Academy, Mombasa has been awarded IB Status by the International Body
The Middle Years Programme
The Aga Khan Academy, Mombasa, is authorized by the International Baccalaureate to offer the Middle Years Programme (MYP), for ages 11-16. Students in the MYP are immersed in a challenging and enriching educational environment which emphasises the mastery of basic skills, the ability to analyse and think critically, the development of self-discipline and good work habits, the acquisition of computer literacy and progressive skill development. This makes the Academy the only full IB continuum school in Kenya and allows it to instill into its curriculum the five strands which will be part of all future Academies.
The MYP integrates the study of the major disciplines, including languages, sciences, literature, social sciences, mathematics, arts, technology, and physical education. The programme encourages student reflection and connections with real world issues. The MYP also helps students develop an awareness of how they learn best, of thought processes and learning strategies. It also includes a service component designed to encourage students to become aware of community needs, and to learn from their involvement in carefully organised service activities.
The Academy currently is offering its very last cohort of IGCSE. This examination will no longer be offered once the current cohort sit their examinations in May of 2011. IGCSE (core or extended curriculum) is taken in five subject groups: languages, humanities, sciences, mathematics and creative, technical and vocational. Students’ final performance in the MYP will be assessed by teams of teachers and validated by the IB through a process of careful external monitoring and moderation of student grades. This process ensures parity of standards across some 600 MYP schools worldwide.
