Local or international?
Choosing a school for your kids is always a difficult process. For expats, who might not know much about a local schooling system, it can be even harder.
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (16-18 years) is considered by many to be the ‘gold standard’ in terms of preparing students for higher education. The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) was introduced in 1994 and today is an increasingly popular choice for international schools worldwide.
What is it and why does it matter?
STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. So, in a sense, anyone taking a physics class would be part of STEM education. However, the idea behind it goes much further: it is an educational method that integrates the four subjects into a single cross-disciplinary program with an applied approach.
