Who is it for and what are the benefits to my child?
 Because the IB Diploma Program in Grades 11 and 12 is externally
assessed, it provides an unequalled level of quality control over skills
assessment and curriculum depth. Welcomed into the best universities worldwide Diploma Programme graduates are sought after because they are
"committed, self-confident, highly organized and risk-taking individuals with
multi-tasking capabilities.” (www.ibo.org)
University Preparation Program
•Studies continue to provide evidence that IB graduates have higher than
average success rates in university. More specifically, time management
skills, critical thinking and writing skills, and being that strong independent
adult learner. Students will gain a sense of self and move forward with
confidence.
Transfer Credit
•Students can apply for University credit based on their results in IB
examinations. Most Ontario universities allow students to gain up to 3
university credits from scores of 5 or higher in IB. Some universities offer
2nd year status upon entering university as they consider your IB
scores/diploma.

• Students choose one course from each of six groups during both years of the
Diploma Program.

the Higher Level (240 hours) provides the flexibility to delve deeply into each
student's strongest subjects, while providing a broad base of knowledge.

Group 1: English HL (*SL considered for students with English not their first language)
Group 2: A second language (French B SL, Spanish ab initio SL)
Group 3: Individuals and Societies (History HL/SL, ITGS SL)
Group 4: Experimental Sciences (Biology HL/SL, Chemistry HL/SL, Physics SL
Group 5: Mathematics (Math Studies SL, Mathematics SL, Mathematics HL)
Group 6: The Arts (Visual Arts)

Core Components of the IBDP
The Diploma Program has three other unique features:
1 Theory of Knowledge
• Is an interdisciplinary course designed to stimulate critical thinking and reflection
• It challenges students to question the bases of knowledge, be aware of bias, and
learn to analyze the evidence used in presenting an argument.
• Students come to understand different points of view and how one's background can
affect one's perception of truth.
2 Creativity, Action and Service (CAS)
• Encourages students to involve themselves beyond the curriculum in the arts,
athletics and service to others.
• Working with the 8 Learning Outcomes of CAS students set goals and then reflect on
those goals in a variety of ways.
3 The Extended Essay
• is a 4,000-word essay that all IB Diploma Program students write on a topic of
special interest drawn from their studies.
• With the guidance of an advisor, each student conducts independent research,
prepares her ideas and organizes material for her essay.
• The skills and techniques honed in creating the Extended Essay provide valuable
practice for university work.

How do we prepare our students?
An Enriched class that will do the following:
1. IB like assessments to prepare you for the IBDP. Ex.
French and History
2. International Mindedness and Learner Profile weaved into
lessons directly.
3. TOK lessons connected to curriculum in grade 9 and 10
4. Students will also be involved with field trips, guest
speakers and some release periods to prepare for
transitioning to IB in their grade 11 year.
5. In grade 10, in second semester their MCR 3U1 credit is
unofficially their first IB course.
6. An 80% in an Enriched class will equal an 80% in an
OSSD class.
