The Secondary School (DP)

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

IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.

Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC).

Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

 Mission Statement from the IB

 The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end, the organization works with schools, governments, and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

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

  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
