• As an IB World School, Morehead 8th Grade Students participate in the IB MYP Community Project. This project is a chance to demonstrate awareness of community and utilize the global perspectives by creating a service based project to help our community; Morehead, El Paso, and the World! 

    The aims of MYP Projects (Projects Guide, 2017) are to encourage and enable students to:

    • Participate in sustained, self-directed inquiry within a global context. Self-directed means that you, the student, take the initiative and responsibility of this project.

    • Generate creative new insights that develop deeper understandings through in- depth investigation.
      In-depth investigation means intensive, thorough, comprehensive research using five to ten different types of sources of information.

    • Demonstrate the skills, attitudes, and knowledge required to complete a project over an extended period of time.
      You must demonstrate time management skills.

    • Communicate effectively in a variety of situations.

    • Demonstrate responsible action through, or as a result of, learning.

    • Appreciate the process of learning and taking pride in their accomplishments.
