International Baccalaureate: IB
In order to live in an interconnected and globalized world in the twenty-first century, a capacity for critical thinking and an international mindset is required.
The educational programme provided by the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB) prepares students to learn to recognize and understand this necessity.
The International Baccalaureate Diploma is a rigorous and balanced programme with a two-year duration, and represents excellent preparation for both higher education and for adult life in a global society. The programme has the recognition and respect from prestigious universities worldwide.
The Baccalaureate stage of education is designed so that our students become:
♣ Knowledgeable and educated
♣ Good communicators
♣ Principled and with integrity
♣ Socially supportive
♣ Bold and audacious
People with integrity who are committed to service: CAS
Baccalaureate students carry out a full programme of Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) which engages students with a variety of activities, simultaneously combining them with the study of academic disciplines.
Creativity: exploration and expansion of ideas which lead to a product or representation which is original or interpretative.
Activity: Physical exercise contributes to a healthy lifestyle. Activities may include individual or team sports, dance, and outdoor activities.
Service: collaborative and reciprocal participation with the community in response to a real need. Students develop and apply personal and social skills in real situations.
