The curriculum of the high school has a highly academic focus and serves to prepare students for university or college. The vast majority of our graduates continue their educational careers in respected universities in North America, Asia and Europe.
Students who successfully complete those credits necessary for graduation receive an AISB High School Diploma.
Students are enrolled in eight academic courses and students in grades 11 and 12 are given the option of a study hall. These courses normally include:
Electives (The Arts, Physical Education, and Technology)
Community service (CAS) and computer literacy are also graduation requirements.
The International Baccalaureate Diploma is available to students in grades 11 and 12 and is successfully completed by a majority of our graduating seniors. Last year the success rate for the IB Diploma was 96% compared to the world average of 80%.
Typically, two-thirds of our graduating seniors earned the full IB Diploma. The IB Diploma is awarded after completing the study of six courses for two years and passing an external exam in all subjects, writing an original research essay, and participating in a program of at least 150 hours of CAS (Creativity, Action, Service). Students may be enrolled as full IB Diploma candidates or on the basis of individual courses of their choice.
