ISE has delivered an effective International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme for more than 15 years. The DP program at ISE is non-selective in that we encourage all students to work towards the Diploma. We know that our strong and supportive program guides students to successful completion of the Diploma.
The Programme is presented as six subject groups enclosing a central core (figure 1 ). It encourages the concurrent study of a broad range of academic areas. Students choose to study courses from modern languages, social sciences, experimental sciences, a mathematics course, and a creative arts course. It is this comprehensive range of subjects that makes the Diploma Programme a demanding course of study designed to prepare students effectively for university entrance. In each academic area students have flexibility in choosing subjects that particularly interest them and that they may wish to study further at university.
Students entering grade 11 will make 6 subject choices. General guidelines for the choices are:
