• SSPPS 10th Graders Demonstrate the MYP Skills They’ll Use in Further Education and Life After the Classroom

    Personal Projects are the capstone to the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP). Students have the chance to explore an area of personal interest and show the skills they’ve learned in the five years of the MYP. Personal projects assess the student’s approaches to learning skills for self-management, research, communication, critical thinking, and collaboration.

    There are three elements to the personal project: 

    1. The outcome: The result of the project and what the student was aiming to achieve.
    2. Process journal: The play-by-play of developing the project. What challenges they faced and how they overcame them.
    3. Report: The final account of the project and its impact.

    Personal Projects are shared in one event at the end of the school year. This year we’re sharing digitally a few of the projects SSP sophomores have been working on the past year and why.
