Why IB?

The IB Diploma is a program suitable for those who have decided to continue their studies abroad i.e. in a European or a US university. It balances breadth of knowledge with specialization and equips students with the critical skills needed for success in higher education. It helps students develop their time management skills and their ability to critically analyze information, which are great assets later on at college.

The International Baccalaureate is a flexible program. Students select subjects from within six subject groups. They also select the level (Higher or Standard) at which they want to study each subject. This enables them to create a personalized program of studies based on their current interests and their objectives for the future.

Since the IB is a common worldwide curriculum, it enables internationally mobile students to transfer from one IB school to another with relative ease and a minimum loss of continuity.
