The Secondary Program, serving students in grades 6-12, is designed to support the needs of our students as they navigate adolescence and prepare for post-secondary study. Research-based, developmentally appropriate practice informs curricular decisions and facilitates emotional, social, and ethical growth in our learners. The Secondary Program encompasses the Middle School program for students grades 6-8 and the Upper School program for students in grades 9-12, including the IB Diploma Program for grades 11-12.
The Middle School curriculum at Island Pacific Academy is a challenging framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world. Our curriculum is inclusive by design; students of all interests and academic abilities benefit from their participation.
Students in the Middle School experience a balanced curriculum which includes exposure to math, English, a second language, performing and visual arts, design technology, social studies, physical education and science.
