IB Diploma Programme

The International Baccalaureate Organization’s (IBO) Diploma Programme is a rigorous two-year pre-university curriculum aimed at students aged 16 to 19.

It leads to a qualification that is widely recognized by the world’s leading universities and enhances their chances of college and university admission. 

The Diploma Programme encourages students to:

  • Ask challenging questions
  • Learn how to learn
  • Develop a strong sense of their identities and cultures
  • Develop the ability to communicate with and understand people from other countries and cultures.

Over the course of the two-year programme, students:

Study six subjects chosen from the six subject groups; three of these subjects are chosen at Higher Level (HL) and three at Standard Level (SL).

  • Follow the Theory of Knowledge (ToK) course
  • Complete an Extended Essay (EE)
  • Participate in Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS).

As an IB World School, NAISR offers IB courses in grades 11 and 12. All students have the opportunity to attempt the full IB Diploma Programme. For further information on the IB Programme please visit www.IBO.org.

IB Diploma candidates must choose one subject from each of five groups (1 to 5), ensuring breadth of knowledge and understanding in their best language, additional language(s), the social sciences, the experimental sciences and mathematics. Student may choose either an arts subject from group 6, or a second subject from groups 1 to 5. At least three (no more than four) subjects are taken at higher level, while the other subjects are taken at standard level. 

The IB Diploma is awarded independently of our high school diploma and students receive their IB results in early July each year. We do not pre-select students to enter the Programme as we believe it should be open to all.  

It is critical that each student and his/her parents invest sufficient time and energy into making an informed decision about how the IB can best meet that student’s needs.  At NAISR, we encourage students to take challenging (and rewarding) IB courses, but there is an expectation that students apply the required time and effort to achieve success.

Students may attempt IB courses; however, the demands of the Diploma Programme and specific courses should not be underestimated.
