IBaccalaureate Diploma Programme

Overview

Recognised by prestigious universities globally including Oxford and Cambridge, the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) nurtures the knowledge, skills and attitudes which empower students to excel and perform in university and later in their careers.

The IBDP Mission Statement

The International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) develops inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end, the IBO works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

The IB Diploma Programme has become an integral part of the school promoting lifelong learning amongst its graduates and disseminating its intrinsic values and ideals throughout the school. A rigorous academic and personal challenge, the programme gives learners the opportunity to develop their skills both inside and outside the classroom. The students will be expected to carry out a 4000 word research project in the form of an Extended Essay, to develop their thinking skills through the Theory of Knowledge course and to play a role in the wider community through the Creativity, Activity and Service parts of the programme.

At Paramount Education, the IB Diploma Programme can proudly trace its roots back to mid-2000s, before being fully incorporated into Sri KDU International School at its founding in 2011. The programme has provided the opportunity for students to produce some fantastic results. They have consistently attained an average of 35 points or more and this has led to graduates being accepted into some of the most prestigious universities in the world. The programme continues to expand and in September 2018 the school is planning to add some new subjects to the curriculum in response to the growing numbers of students.
