International Baccalaureate
Middle Years Programme (MYP) Grades 6-10

In fall 2013, Oxford Middle School became an International Baccalaureate School.  The MYP is a connection for students who have attended one of Oxford's Primary Year's Programmes offered at all of the district's elementary schools. The Middle Years Programme (MYP) is for all students grades 6-10. Students continue this course work in Grades 9 and 10 at Oxford High School and can elect to be part of Diploma Programme (DP) in 11-12 grade. Students interested in DP should contact Diploma Programme Coordinator Jason Eldridge at [email protected] or Diploma Programme Administrator Kurt Nuss at [email protected].

Oxford Middle School and High School have a shared vision:
Oxford Secondary Schools work together with local and global communities to educate learners with rigorous coursework, while fostering skills relevant to each individual and enhancing cooperative relationships. We prepare learners for success in a world community where they are invested in the process of making principled decisions.

The International Baccalaureate Mission:
International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. The programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
