Your Pathway for Global Education

IB programmes are designed to stimulate young people to become intellectually curious and equip them with the knowledge, conceptual understanding, skills, reflective practices and attitudes needed to become independent and self-confident.

IBDP (International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme) is an internationally approved 2 Year programme that enables students to pursue higher education across the world. Almost every acclaimed institution accepts the IBDP Certificate. That is why an IB student makes that additional difference at the university level. IB promotes the range of student skills that can help them in pursuing higher education in the desired streams. The IB offers a variety of topic choices in the sciences, medicine, engineering, business, global affairs and the creative arts. Students have the option to choose whatever topic that they are interested, or in vogue.

Students pursuing an IB diploma take 6 major subjects in grades 11 and 12. These typically cover around 70 first languages, one of 21 second languages and at least one subject from each of the following categories: Individuals and Society, Experimental Sciences, Mathematics

Typical assessment components comprise: written assignments, oral presentations, portfolios, research projects, practical work and examinations.

The IB program promotes a global perspective by: encouraging the study of at least one second language, urging students to consider multiple perspectives, developing an appreciation of other cultures and religions, addressing global issues and providing possible solutions, encouraging student and faculty exchanges with other countries.

Acquiring the skills necessary to conduct purposeful, constructive inquiry and research, to become independent learners. Exploring concepts, ideas and issues that have global relevance; using a significant body of knowledge across a range of disciplines.

Applying thinking skills critically and creatively to approach complex problems and make reasoned decisions. Receiving and expressing ideas and information confidently and creatively in more than one language and in a variety of modes.

Showing empathy, compassion, and respect toward others; having a personal commitment to action and service. Respecting the views, values and traditions of other individuals and cultures; seeking and considering a range of points of view.

In India too, there are over 65 institutions offering the IB curriculum and every year, the number only increases. A geographical location change is also possible within the 2 year programme, to suit specific interests, teaching methodology, campus facilities on offer and so on. Thus a student from north India can easily move to an IB school in south India and take over without missing a beat. It will be JAD (just another day) at school!

IB is equivalent to CBSE and ICSE and state government 12th in its acceptance.

Several reputed institutions all over India accept IB students for their university programmes. Motivated students can also write IIT, JEE and other professional course exams.

We believe in doing things right, the first time. Therefore we focus on the IBDP programme for now. Our students get undivided attention with classrooms that take only 15 students at any given time. We can admit and groom students from any part of the world, including children from India who have attended CBSE, ICSE and State programmes.
