The Secondary School (DP)

WHY THE INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE DIPLOMA PROGRAMME?

AISPP is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP), and pursuing authorization as an IB World School.

The Diploma Programme (DP) is a two-year international education programme that prepares students age 16–19 years for success going into, and throughout, university. The DP offers a holistic approach to teaching and learning with a focus on developing intercultural awareness. Students learn to explore and understand the world around them through inquiry, critical thinking and open-mindedness.

Parents who want the best possible education for their children choose the DP because it offers:

  • a challenging academic curriculum that serves as outstanding preparation for university and higher education
  • a student-centred approach to teaching, focused on developing students intellectually, emotionally physically and socially, as opposed to preparation for test-taking only
  • a focus on international-mindedness, compassion, and understanding intercultural differences
  • respected, reliable and world-renowned academic preparation
  • Universities regularly cite DP students as the best prepared for higher education
  • DP graduates excel at university and often begin their studies with advanced standing

10 Reasons why the IB Diploma Programme is ideal preparation for university

  1. It increases academic opportunity
  2. IB students care about more than just results
  3. It encourages you to become a confident and independent learner
  4. It’s an international qualification
  5. Graduates are globally minded
  6. The IB encourages critical thinking
  7. DP students have proven time management skills
  8. It assesses more than examination techniques
  9. Subjects are not taught in isolation
  10. It encourages breadth and depth of learning
