The International Baccalaureate (IB) develops enquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people with a global perspective.

It provides a framework of learning that encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. Students are not only academically challenged but also personally nurtured preparing them for the future and to become contributors to a global society.

Its focus is on understanding and critical thinking rather than rote memory.

  • Planning and self regulation

What people are saying
about the IB

It allows students to explore their passions and do something powerful with them. It involves third or fourth level thinking where students really have to go beyond the surface and dig deeper into more abstract and conceptual thinking.
Dr. Vincent Chian, Principal of Fairview
International School, Malaysia
“Our parents are excited because students are becoming well-rounded and they’re getting that classic liberal arts-minded education.”
Dr. John Waller, Director, Secondary Curriculum and Special Programs, Marietta City Schools, USA.
“By creating an environment where students make connections between what they are learning in the classroom and the world around them, we are creating global citizens who will be well prepared to take leading roles in the world.”
Dr. Brooke Carroll, Head of School, Seneca Academy, USA
“It not only gives children an international perspective to their education, but also focuses on how to be a learner. I am not just delivering them facts but how they will best learn what they want to know.”
Sarah Pepper ISD Principal, Ireland

We are offering one Year 7 foundation class for 2019, with capped numbers, to ensure students are fully engaged in their learning. Small class sizes enable teachers to monitor and plan individually for each student, catering to their unique learning needs.
