WHY INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE ?
Life in the 21st century, in an interconnected, globalized world, requires critical-thinking skills and a sense of
international-mindedness, something that International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Program students come to know and understand.
The IB understands that success in higher education and beyond involves thinking critically and creatively. The IB Diploma Program’s challenging curriculum educates the whole student, developing the capacity for inquiry, research and problem-solving as well as essential skills for communication and collaboration.

The academically challenging two year IB Diploma Program includes six subject areas; an extended essay of 4,000 words; experiential learning through creativity, action, service (CAS); and theory of knowledge (TOK), a course that fosters critical thinking. Students take a combination of standard level (SL) and higher level (HL) courses. Assessments include a variety of tasks that emphasize higher-order cognitive skills and student performance is marked and factored into the students’ final grades.
