This course incorporates the best practice of post-16 exam
systems from many different countries, which gives the IB its
international flavour: It has global recognition and is recognised by
the best universities across the world.

This pre-university programme of studies guarantees an
outstanding academic level to our students compared to other traditional
systems of education. International Baccalaureate students not only go
through a highly demanding curriculum, but also will have to meet three added requirements to obtain the diploma:

– Students follow a Theory of Knowledge course aiming to stimulate critical thinking about knowledge and their experiences in and out the classroom.

– Students participate in CAS activities (Creativity, Action, Service)
where through artistic productions, sports, and services to the
community the youngsters put in practice their ability to share and help

– Students write a 4,000 words Extended Essay, an original investigation helped by one of the teachers who acts as a tutor.

The students may opt to follow a humanities or science based
programme of studies. Within each branch there are further option
subjects to allow the student to adapt their studies to their chosen
university course.
