CIS-Developed Curriculum

Year 10 & 11

In August 2018, the school embarked on an exciting initiative for the Year 11 academic programme, and moved from an IB MYP assessment criteria model to a school-developed assessment criteria model. By implementing this change, the school has been able to design, structure and assess student development based on learning objectives and criteria more closely linked with bridging the gap between IB MYP and DP expectations. Year 11 student learning now links more closely with the interdisciplinary work and project-based learning which is central to the Hangzhou experience in Year 10.
