Why Choose Introduction to IB?

The International Baccalaureate Programme is renowned worldwide for helping students to achieve success in traditional academic subjects, as well as broadening students’ overall intellectual, emotional and ethical awareness through its holistic curriculum. The Introduction to IB integrates the development of the students’ depth of knowledge with a focus on their physical wellbeing, mental wellbeing, and appreciation of 21st century skills.

What You’ll Learn

Our Introduction to IB programme concentrates on the following disciplines, which constitute the core of a year-round IB curriculum: Humanities; Sciences; Mathematics; Arts; and Technology.

How You’ll Learn: Time to Shine

An important component of the International Baccalaureate is its focus on examining the nature of knowledge itself, such as in its Theory of Knowledge module. In our Introduction to IB programme, students will broaden their theory of knowledge by participating in a research and presentation project, through which they will develop key critical thinking skills as questioning the nature of knowledge, the validity of sources, and the importance of argumentation and rhetoric.
