IB MYP Program

To inspire and prepare all students with the confidence, courage, and competence to achieve their dreams; 

contribute to community; and engage in a lifetime of learning.

The mission statement for our school district fits perfectly with expectation of giving back to your community. It sets a goal for students to grow beyond intellectual achievement during the course of the school year. It is our intention to instill in students a personal value system through which to guide their own lives as thoughtful members of local communities and the larger world. The IB curriculum model places the student as a learner at its center; the next circle represents the place and role of the student in communities, from the immediate family and school environment to the world at large.

Giving importance to the sense of community throughout the Middle Years Program encourages responsible citizenship as it seeks to deepen student knowledge and understanding of the world around them. Students make connections between their intellectual and social development and the benefits that they can contribute to the community by asking themselves, “How can I make a difference?” Service to your community includes action and reflection inside as well as outside of the classroom. At North View, students discover the social reality of self, others, and community.

Documenting the amount of hours that students put into their service work is not to be the focus.  We do ask that students contribute 15 hours of service to their community each school year. Students are to document the hours they contribute and reflect on their experience in a web-based software called ManageBac. If students have question about how to access their account, they can stop by the IB office in room 100 at North View. The hours that are entered into ManageBac will be put on the students offical transcript from Osseo Area Schools and can be used for future college and job applications.

Assessment at North View

There are a number of changes to how students are assessed at North View.  These changes are designed to be in line with the direction that Osseo Area Schools have moved with assessment changes as well.

Students at North View are assessed under what is refered to as standards based grading.  The grade book is broken into two categories, summative and formative.  Summative work is work that a student submits that is typically at the end of a unit of study or some other predetermined time frame.  Formative work is student work that is submitted that is used to indicate to the student and the teacher how the student is learning and what steps they may need to take next to ensure that students are progressing towards the standards that are being taught in that unit.   These two categories are weighted, meaning one category influences the students grade more that the other.  Summative work is to account for a minimum of 80% of the students grade. Aspects of student behavior such as attendance, effort, participation and behavior are not to be included in the students grade. The grade at the end of the trimester will reflect the students achievement level of the standards taught during that trimester.

Because North View is an IB school, there will also be assessments of the IB Criteria in each subject area of the Arts, Individuals and Societies, Language and Literature, Language Aquisition, Mathematics, Physical Education, Science and Design. Each of these subject areas will be assessed at least twice per criteria during the course and the results of these assessments will be recorded in ManageBac.  If you have questions about IB assessment practices, please contact Kurt Carlson, North View's IB Coordinator at 763-585-7227 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program


The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program is a rich educational experience offering rigorous academic challenges and life skills for students in grades 6 through 10. It consists of eight required subject areas that provide a broad foundation of knowledge. These include Language and Literature (English), Language Acquisition (Spanish or French), Mathematics, Sciences, Arts, Physical and Health Education, Individuals and Societies (Social Studies) and Design. Teachers draw from the exemplars from the world’s civilizations to help students develop an appreciation for all cultures, including their own. Subject matter is presented through six distinctive lenses called Global Contexts. These include:

  • Identities and relationships
  • Orientation in space and time
  • Personal and cultural expression
  • Scientific and technical innovation
  • Globalization and sustainability
  • Fairness and development

They enable teachers and students to see relationships among subjects, ideas, and the world’s peoples. Students are challenged to evaluate information critically, seek out and explore connections between ideas, events and technological advances, and develop an awareness of the obligations and responsibilities of being a citizen of our nation and the world.
