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.
General IB Diploma Requirements:

All students enrolled in the IB Diploma Programme will sit for a series of exams in 6 subject areas. All two year IB HL/SL courses are tested in May of the student’s senior year. Students enrolled in a 1 year IB SL class will sit for the exam in the year the class is taken. The 2016 IB Exam testing schedule starts on Monday, May 2 and concludes on Friday, May 20.

To earn the IB Diploma the student must meet ALL of the following requirements:


  1. Submit the internal assessment assigned within each of the student’s selected courses of study. Students who fail to submit an internal assessment will receive a grade of N regardless of how many points are accrued on the external May exams. Therefore, a student missing an internal assessment cannot earn the diploma and may be requested to exit the IB Diploma Programme.

  2. Successful completion of the Extended Essay and the Theory of Knowledge (TOK) Essay with a grade of D or higher. Students who earn an E on either the Extended Essay or the Theory of Knowledge Essay will not be awarded the diploma regardless of how many points are accrued on the external May exams.
