As an IB World School, ISPP follows the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) in Grades 6-10 and the IB Diploma Programme in Grades 11 and 12. Each unit of study is developed around a significant concept and unit questions that students use as a basis for inquiry into the heart of the topic.
The Diploma Programme (DP) divides the curriculum into six subject groups: Languages (2 groups), Humanities, Experimental Sciences, Mathematics, and The Arts. Students select one course from each group. Each course is taught over two years, with a culminating assessment—a set of external exams in most subjects—taking place in May of the students’ Grade 12 year. Throughout each course, students complete a variety of internal assessment tasks to develop not only mastery of content but also the ability to apply learning to contemporary situations.
