    The MYP curriculum correlates with the Alabama College and Career Ready Standards (CCRS).
    MYP enhances curriculum, fostering creativity for both students and teachers.

    Culminating Requirements

    The MYP students will have the opportunity to complete service projects to further develop skills they have learned through the MYP as it arises naturally in the curriculum.
