Personal Project

Personal Project Overview- Watch this Video!

In brief, the MYP Personal Project is a culminating accomplishment at the end of an MYP student’s which is 10th grade. Each student has the opportunity to create a product or piece of work that reflects his or her interests and creativity. Personal Projects give KFS students the opportunity to demonstrate independent learning and many other skills they have learned during their MYP experience at KFS.

Each Personal Project includes four elements:

  1. A creative product the student has completed independently;
  2. A short (1000 word) paper, brochure, or poster that enhances or explains the project;
  3. About 10 hours of service related to the project;
  4. A reflection journal that follows the student’s journey throughout the project process. This can include the original plan, notes, photos, diagrams, journal entries, etc.


Project possibilities are as limitless as your imagination! Any passion or interest you have can probably be converted into a personal project! Following is just a sampling of the kinds of personal projects…
