IB DIPLOMA PROGRAMME AT COMPASS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL DOHA

Our International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) opens doors to the best universities in the world. Your child will follow personalised pathways that blend outstanding academic teaching and learning with exceptional opportunities for personal growth.

Our IB curriculum

Our IB school learners study at our Madinat Khalifa campus, which is to the north of Doha's city centre.

This demanding but rewarding two-year programme sees our students excel in traditional subject areas and enjoy exceptional enrichment opportunities. It develops confidence and creativity, as well as broadening our students’ understanding of the world. Our IBDP is also respected by the world’s best universities.

 

The IBDP explained

Students study six subject groups: Language and Literature, Language Acquisition, Individuals and Societies, Sciences, Mathematics, and the Arts. Three of these groups are taken at higher level and three at standard level.

Your child will also complete the core programme – Theory of Knowledge, Extended Essay, and Creativity, Activity and Service – to achieve their full Diploma.

Theory of Knowledge (TOK): a course that explores critical thinking, giving students an understanding of how we learn.

The Extended Essay: an in-depth independent research project focusing on a specific subject.

Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS): a range of activities that develop our students’ creative skills and wellbeing, and support our local community.

Students need to get at least 24 points to pass the IBDP, including a minimum of 12 in higher level subjects and nine in standard level subjects. Completing the core programme scores three points.

 

Outstanding academic outcomes

Our 2021 IBDP class achieved the highest score in our school’s history, putting them in the world’s top 15%. Of the 96% who graduated, nearly 20% scored 40 points or above (out of 45).
