IBDP 2016

Our two-year IBDP (International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme) is a balanced holistic education that builds character and self-confidence, cultivates leadership qualities and develops managerial skills among students to enable them to excel in studies and work careers. We achieved a 5-year average of 36.5 in 2016 versus the world average of 30.0 for the IBDP score.
 
Around 71% of our IB students gained 35+ points against the global average of 27%, an amazing achievement as any international school getting above 35 is regarded one of the best performing in the world. This is remarkable since our students study a combination of six subject groups.
