International Baccalaureate Diploma PRogramme (IBDP)
The High School offers the IBDP in Grades 11 and 12. The IBDP is academically challenging and balanced, with final examinations that prepare students, aged 16 to 19, for success at university and life beyond. It has been designed to address the intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being of students. The IBDP is widely recognized and highly respected by leading universities across the globe.
Students study the IBDP Core: Theory of Knowledge, Creativity, Activity & Service, and the Extended Essay, as well as six subjects chosen from the subject groups: Studies in Language and Literature, Language Acquisition, Individuals and Societies, Sciences, Mathematics and the Arts. Most subjects offered can be studied at Standard or Higher Level. The diploma is based on a point system. Each subject is graded on a scale of 1 to 7, whether it is at Standard or Higher Level, and the Core can earn a further 3 points, so 45 points are available in total. Students must attain 24 points to pass the diploma and earn at least 12 on their three HL subjects with no HL being scored as 1 or 2.
More than 95% of our graduating classes undertake the challenge of the full IBDP.
