These two-year courses entail both internal assessments in the form of classroom projects and external assessments in the form of final exams.
IB Diploma Programme students will also complete the three elements of the IB Diploma Programme core:
- Theory of Knowledge—a course about kinds of knowledge and ways of knowing
- The Extended Essay—an independent research paper
- CAS—certain extracurricular activities and a service project
DP students will be very busy but should have time for sports and other pursuits. They must be able to work independently, but they will continue to benefit from small classes and support.
