Middle Years (age 11-13)
At Amity International School Amsterdam students in Middle Years (11-13 years old) learn through an inquiry-based curriculum, which focuses on equipping them with the skills necessary to be successful in the world today.
In the Middle Years, learners are encouraged to make natural connections between different learning areas, in an effective programme of inquiry and transdisciplinary learning.
As students progress, learning areas become more compartmentalised by necessity, due to the increasing depth of specialist knowledge to be acquired. However, each year students must study at least one collaboratively-planned interdisciplinary unit that involves two or more subject groups. Interdisciplinary teaching and learning is systematically and meticulously planned by our teaching staff, to ensure students maximise the benefits of this progressive, best-practise learning strategy.
