At IGB International School, our Grade 6 to 10 students study a broad range of subjects delivered through the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP). The MYP, first introduced in 1994, is a coherent and comprehensive curriculum framework that provides a rigorous yet flexible academic programme and develops the life skills appropriate to 11-16 year old students. As part of the IB’s continuum of international education, the MYP naturally follows the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) and serves as excellent preparation for the IB Diploma Programme (DP) and IB Career-related Programme (CP).
The MYP emphasises intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and the real world. Additionally, it fosters the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement essential qualities for young people who are becoming global leaders.
The Pre-DP programme is designed for students who are interested in undertaking the DP, but may not be familiar with the IB way of teaching and learning. The Pre-DP programme offered by IGBIS is a wonderful enrichment programme that encourages students to develop and explore new topics and ideas, as IB learners, to prepare students for the rigour of the DP and CP. Students benefit from very experienced IB teachers, who assist students to reach the required starting level, no matter what their previous educational background has been.
Our Grade 11 and 12 programme is designed to prepare students to graduate with the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. Students have the option of pursuing the complete Diploma Programme (DP) or following an academic path that allows them to attain IB Course Results in selected subjects. This ensures all students follow pathways to graduation that are both challenging and fulfilling. Our courses of study also help prepare students for life after graduation from IGBIS through an emphasis on service learning activities and the study of the philosophy of learning. All students have the opportunity to also attain the IGBIS Diploma.
