Principal's Message

Dear parents,


Since 2012, Abbotsford Middle School has been officially authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP). At AMS the Middle Years Programme is an inclusive whole school program for our students in grades 6 to 8. 

The MYP is a framework for learning that emphasizes intellectual challenge and is designed to enhance the BC provincial curriculum. It encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world, preparing them for success in further study and in life.

The MYP aims to develop active learners and internationally minded young people who can empathize with others.

Students in an IB classroom are empowered to ask challenging questions that will focus their research and learning, ultimately teaching them the concepts prescribed by the provincial curriculum. This inquiry-based approach results in students who are creative, critical, and reflective thinkers.

Please see the Information for Parents at for more information.
