The Middle Years Programme (MYP) provides a framework of learning that encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. We foster the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement.
The MYP certificate at Strothoff International School is recognized as equivalent to the German Mittlere Reife* by the Kultusministerkoferenz (literally "conference of ministers of education"). This makes Strothoff International School one of only 10 schools in Germany and the only one in Hesse whose MYP certificate is recognized as Mittlere Reife.

*The Mittlere Reife is a school leaving certificate in Germany that is roughly comparable with the American high school diploma or the British GCSE. It is regularly awarded after ten years of schooling.
The grade 6 to 10 MYP programme enables us to develop the learning potential of each student. We take students from transdisciplinary learning into interdisciplinary learning and equip them with the skills necessary to succeed in the IB Diploma Programme.
Being a Global Citizen is a tenet of the IB programmes and takes many forms in academic and extracurricular life. The “Action in the MYP” programme teaches Middle Years students how to become engaged in their communities through service to others.
We encourage students to act on their beliefs, as a way to improve the lives and circumstances of others. Strothoff International School students are currently involved in individual and group projects including: lunch helpers, buddy readers, elder care, responsible data analysis and anti-slavery advocacy.
