MYP Overview

Roosevelt Magnet is an International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (IB MYP) and is developing opportunities for STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) trans-disciplinary learning.

Staff training and curriculum preparation have been completed and we have been formally authorized as of February 2006. The IB MYP will further the academic continuity with San Diego High School of International Studies prestigious IB Diploma Program. The International Baccalaureate Organization philosophy for the middle school student promotes international awareness and concern with an appreciation for the arts, foreign language, music, and technology. It also encourages compassion for humanity and instills a sense of student responsibility for community and service.

Roosevelt also utilizes the enriching resources available in Balboa Park to enhance instruction for our students. From the many world-renowned museums to the San Diego Zoo, our students make real world connections through hands-on experiences obtained in our own backyard.

The MYP curriculum focuses on situating learning through Subject Area Content, Global Context, and Concepts.

The IB learner profile is the IB mission statement translated into a set of learning outcomes for the 21st century.

The learner profile provides a long-term vision of education. It is a set of ideals that can inspire, motivate and focus the work of schools and teachers, uniting them in a common purpose.
