Roosevelt Middle School proudly offers: IB Middle Years Programme (MYP)
Middle Years Programme Life in the 21st century places many changing demands on students making the transition through adolescence. They are at a crucial period of personal, social, physical and intellectual development. The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP) is designed to help young people find a sense of belonging in an increasingly interrelated world by fostering a positive attitude toward learning and living as engaged citizens. The MYP at Roosevelt Middle School is for all 6th, 7th and 8th grade students and embodies the concept of inquiry-based learning across the subject groups below. This approach provides an instructional framework that encourages our students to understand the connections between traditional subjects and the real world as creative, critical and reflective thinkers.
“Tell me and I forget, show me and I remember, involve me and I understand.” - Chinese Proverb

STREAM Science Technology Reading
The IB STREAM program at Roosevelt Middle School provides rigorous curriculum that meets state and national Common Core standards. This strengthens student knowledge of all subjects and fosters innovation through application of 21st Century skills.
Students are encouraged to critically assess the implications of science concepts and their applications to local, as well as, global issues. Through the implementation of scientific inquiry investigations, students collect, organize and analyze data, and draw conclusions based on that analysis.
Roosevelt has three STREAM technology labs. Two multimedia labs provide space for students to explore artistic design concepts and apply skills and knowledge using 21st century tools. There is also a language lab offering space and tools needed for second and third language acquisition. In addition, 1:1 computing is available in all classrooms.
Literacy is foundational to all IB/STREAM content. In each subject area, reading is required in order to develop knowledge and understanding. MYP students will learn to evaluate specific information, ideas, opinions and attitudes presented in written texts. In turn, they will analyze, evaluate and respond to a wide range of written texts in two languages. An understanding of engineering is developed through the IB Design Cycle. In this inquiry process, students identify real world problems, investigate possible solutions, create a product or solution and evaluate the product or solution based on Design Cycle IB criterion.
MYP subject groups naturally align with STREAM. The approach to teaching and learning in IB is project-based where students engage in global challenges through inquiry, action and reflection. Similar to engineering, the arts are approached as a framework for inquiry in order to foster, encourage, and expand creative thinking. Works of art are created and students must reflect upon the process.
Understanding of the concepts from the five branches of mathematics (number, c algebra, geometry & trigonometry, statistics & probability, and discrete mathematics) is essential. Students will use appropriate mathematical concepts and skills to solve problems in both familiar and unfamiliar situations, including those in real-life b contexts; and apply general rules correctly to solve problems.
