The Middle School follows the Middle Years Programme (MYP) of the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) which encourages students to make links between their studies and the real world.

The curriculum promotes the development of communicative skills, intercultural understanding and global commitment – essential qualities for young people who will become global leaders. The MYP is sufficiently flexible to meet the curricular needs of the principal national and local educational systems. It is based on knowledge, skills and attitudes developed in the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) and prepares students to face the academic challenges of the IB Diploma Programme (DP) and the IB Career-related Programme (CP).

The MYP Curriculum includes 8 subject groups and provides a broad, balanced education for students aged 11-16 years. It provides a learning structure that encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. The MYP emphasizes the intellectual challenge and encourages students to make links between their studies in the traditional subjects and the real world.

The International School of Siena is a candidate school for the Middle Years Programme. This school is following the procedural path to obtain authorisation as an IB World School. These schools share a common philosophy – their commitment to a high quality, stimulating international education that the International School of Siena believes is important for its students.
