About International Baccalaureate

IB Diploma Programme

The Diploma Programme Is:

A challenging two-year program open to all juniors and seniors.  The Diploma Programme (DP) curriculum consists of six subject group areas, areas, an extended essay of up to 4,000 words, participation in Theory of Knowledge (ToK) class, and an extracurricular requirements called CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service).  Students who pursue the diploma take six subjects, one in each area as outlined.  A minimum of three subjects must be taken at a higher level (HL) and the rest at a standard level (SL).  There must be no more than four subjects taken at a Higher Level.  All subjects are assessed using both internal and external assessment, including final exams in May.


The IB continuum of international education for 3 to 19 year olds is unique because of its academic and personal rigor.  We challenge students to excel in their studies and in their personal growth.  We aim to inspire a quest for learning throughout life that is marked by enthusiasm and empathy. The IB aspires to help schools develop well- rounded identities, make ethical decisions, join with others in celebrating our common humanity and are prepared to apply what they learned in real-world, complex and unpredictable situations.

Extended Essay:

The Extended Essay asks students to engage in independent research through an in-depth study of a question relating to one of the DP subjects they are studying. 


Theory of Knowledge:

Theory of Knowledge develops a coherent approach to learning that unifies the academic disciplines.  In this course on critical thinking, students inquire into the nature of knowing and deepen their understanding of knowledge as a human construction.


Creativity, Activity, Service: 

 Creativity, activity, service (CAS) involves students in a range of activities alongside their academic studies throughout the DP.  Creativity encourages students to engage in the arts and creative thinking. Activity seeks to develop a healthy lifestyle through physical activity.  Service with the community offers a vehicle for a new learning with academic value.  The three strands of CAS enhance students' personal and interpersonal development through experiential learning and enable journeys of self-discovery.
