High School IB Diploma Programme
The IB is a comprehensive and challenging pre university / college course that demands
the best from motivated students and teachers.
The two year curriculum covers a wide range of academic subjects.
Universities recognise the outstanding qualities of IB diploma students. Typically
diploma holders are ready to debate real-world issues from an international perspective
and to provide leadership and support in the local and global community.
They demonstrate capacity for in-depth study while maintaining a broad perspective
of the different subject areas.
