INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE CURRICULUM

Our commitment to providing a rigorous international education comes to life through our use of the International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes. 

As an authorised three-programme, IB World School, we offer the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP). With its emphasis on critical thinking, intercultural understanding and personal development, the mission of the IB closely aligns with our school's mission and vision for learning.  

Through each of the IB programmes, our teachers use the inquiry cycle to develop rich and challenging learning experiences that encourage students to pursue their pathways to individual excellence, both within individual areas of focus as well as across subject areas. 

PRE-K TO GRADE 5

PRIMARY YEARS PROGRAMME

Inquiry sits at the heart of the PYP -- it is through asking questions, pursuing passions and making connections that learners in the PYP develop academically and personally. Teachers use the PYP transdisciplinary themes to create units of inquiry that weave together knowledge, skills and understandings from different subject areas. Through the PYP, students become more aware of themselves and the world around them, identifying how they can make contributions in meaningful and developmentally-appropriate ways. 

GRADEs 6 - 10

MIDDLE YEARS PROGRAMME

Through eight different subject areas, MYP students engage in a programme of learning that is both broad and balanced. They are encouraged to dig deeply into key concepts that frame the importance of their studies, as well as connect each subject to one another to create more authentic learning contexts. As they progress through this five-year programme, MYP students become more aware of and reflective about their strengths and areas for growth as learners. 

GRADES 11 AND 12

IB DIPLOMA PROGRAMME

Designed to challenge students academically and prepare them for post-secondary studies, the DP aims to maintain breadth of learning with increased focus within each discipline. DP students select six subjects to study over the course of two years, three at standard level and three at higher level. In addition, they also must complete the DP core through which they integrate and apply subject-based learnings. A combination of coursework and end-of-programme examinations are externally moderated and assessed against DP criteria.
