IB diploma programme

A STANDARD OF EXCELLENCE

HIGH SCHOOL / IB DIPLOMA PROGRAMME

 

Our four-year high school is divided into two distinct phases, each with a duration of two years. In Grades 10 and 11, students work towards completion of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years programme (MYP).

Most of our students aim for the full IB Diploma, which is recognised by universities all over the world. The IB Diploma Programme is a rigorous pre-university course of study. It is a broad-based two-year course that aims to encourage students to be knowledgeable and inquiring, but also caring and compassionate. There is a strong emphasis on encouraging students to develop intercultural understanding, open-mindedness, and the attitudes necessary for them to respect and evaluate a range of points of view.

IB'S MIDDLE YEARS PROGRAMME


During the first two years, students complete the final years of the IB’s Middle Years Programme (MYP), with the key difference that subject specialisation takes place in some of the eight subject groups, allowing the biennial to be both the culmination of the MYP as well as preparation for the IB Diploma Programme.

IB'S DIPLOMA PROGRAMME


In the second two years of high school, our schools offer the International Baccalaureate’s rigorous two-year Diploma Programme (IBDP) for 16-19 year olds, which is widely considered to be the leading pre-university qualification in the world. We have offered the IB Diploma programme since 1987 and are proud of both our long-standing relationship with the IB as well as our track record of academic success.

OUR TRACK RECORD OF ACADEMIC SUCCESS.


One in three students attaining 38 points or more (often considered as the benchmark for admission to the top rung of the world’s leading universities).

These results are particularly impressive when one considers that ISE’s approach to admissions is not purely based on prior academic merit. We believe that as many young people as possible should have access to this wonderful programme of study and hence our policy is that, if we believe an applicant can have an enriching experience during their time with us and that they can leave with an IB Diploma in their hand to open doors with, then we will offer a place.

Whilst preparing students exceptionally well for academic success in each of their chosen subject disciplines, thanks to a team of highly qualified teachers - many of whom are IB examiners and trainers - we endeavour to ensure that the underlying philosophy of the IB is at the forefront of the student experience during their Diploma Programme studies. We encourage students to be knowledgeable and inquiring, but also caring and compassionate. There is a strong emphasis on encouraging students to develop intercultural understanding, open-mindedness, and the attitudes necessary for them to respect and evaluate a range of points of view. To this end, the school is often commended as such when the IB conducts its evaluations of us.
