International Baccalaureate (IB).
The Diploma Program is a two-year program of international education. It leads to a qualification that is widely recognised by the world’s leading universities as well as within Australia.
Students study six subjects selected from the subject groups for the full two years: First Language (usually English), Second Language, Individuals and Societies, Experimental Sciences, Mathematics and the Arts & Electives.
Normally three subjects are studied at higher level (HL), courses representing 240 teaching hours, and the remaining three subjects are studied at standard level (SL), courses representing 150 teaching hours. Students usually remain in the same class with the same teacher for two years, although some movement may occur depending on the subject or whether a student changes from SL to HL or vice-versa.
The three additional requirements are a 4,000 word Extended Essay of choice, an interdisciplinary course entitled Theory of Knowledge (TOK) and participation in the School’s Creativity, Action, Service (CAS) program.
