The IB Diploma Programme is offered as a package consisting of three core modules and a choice of six subjects from the courses offered.
Theory of Knowledge (TOK): Enables students to reflect on the nature of knowledge as well as give them time for critical reflection on their studies, what others have to say and through analysing concepts and arguments and the basis of value judgments. Extended Essay (EE): Allows learners to complete and present a 4000 word essay based on research work on a subject of their choice.
Creativity, Action, Service (CAS): learners undertake a project that provides them with an opportunity to pursue their interests in a wider sphere than their immediate school environment. The program is mainly designed by the School to meet the prescribed program of CAS.
There are six subject groups, which are divided into: 3 subjects at Higher Level (HL) and 3 subjects at Standard Level (SL). HL and SL courses differ in scope but are measured according to the same grade descriptors, with students expected to demonstrate a greater body of knowledge, understanding and skills at Higher Level. Each student takes at least three (but not more than four) subjects at Higher Level, and the remaining at Standard Level.
