The IBDP is a cornerstone of the academic experience at ISKL, providing a challenging two-year pre-university curriculum that leads to a qualification recognized by the world’s leading universities. 

 To earn the IB Diploma, students are required to study six subjects (three at Higher Level and three at Standard Level) and complete the Diploma Programme (DP) Core, which broadens the students’ educational experience and provides opportunities for them to apply their knowledge and develop necessary skills. The DP Core comprises three required components:

  • Theory of Knowledge: Students reflect on the nature of knowledge
  • The Extended Essay:  An independent, self-directed piece of research, finishing with a 4,000-word paper
  • Creativity, Activity, Service: Students complete a project related to those three concepts

 IB students are constantly absorbed in authentic and challenging academic work. Historical investigations, mathematical explorations, geographic fieldwork, economic commentaries, world language, and theatre research. Such learning cannot be done by memorizing facts and figures. It is accomplished by being inquisitive and taking intellectual risks; the hallmarks of a 21st-century education.
