IB Diploma (Grade 11 & 12)
Following the Foundation Years, students enter the IB Diploma Program prepared and motivated after gaining experience with character-based projects and developing their critical thinking skills in a supportive learning environment. In preparing students for university entrance, the IBDP not only encourages a high-level of academic discipline through rigorous academics, but also to ask challenging questions, to develop a strong sense of their own identity and to have international communication skills and cultural awareness.
The IB environment is dynamic, where students are at the center of their learning and maintain a wide breadth of subjects. Students are encouraged to become independent learners, coming prepared to class, presenting the material and being coached by their teachers. Assignments are demanding, but by graduation the caliber of
research, writing and project management skills will be exceptional. The balance between academic work and co-curricular activities allows students to tailor the program according to their interests and develop an impressive university profile in the process.
A round-table format enables students to engage in their lessons alongside their teacher and peers. This interactive classroom facilitates discussion and enables teachers to follow the progress of each individual student.
Coaches at each class level ensure that every student is continuously challenged or receives any support they may need. This personalized attention allows for a deeper connection between the student and the learning environment.
An Extended Essay Supervisor is assigned to each student based on their chosen EE subject during IB1. This supervisor collaborates with the student through the entirety of this research project for guidance and revision - from conception to submission to the IBO.
A University Advisor begins the conversation in IB1 to help identify academic pursuits, aspirations and characteristics that the student would like to consider for their next steps. IB students continue their journey towards university with one-on-one support in preparing applications through to selecting their university offers from around the world.
