What is the International Baccalaureate Programme?
As the next step from primary school, the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum includes the following programmes for older students.
- The Middle Years Programme (MYP) is intended for children aged 11-16. It encompasses eight subject groups and teaches students how to use their classroom learning practically in the real world. The MYP's well-rounded approach emphasises relationships, cultural identity, scientific innovation, globalisation and other key areas which will allow students to flourish in all areas of life.
- Intended for students aged 16-19, the Diploma Programme (IBDP) is highly-respected by prestigious Universities worldwide. This programme concentrates on providing students with a wide breadth of knowledge and rewards them the opportunity to study at least two languages.
Are There Country-Specific Offerings?
Parents may also opt for a secondary school model that aligns with their respective home country’s approach so their children can follow a framework with which they are already familiar. Country-specific curricula in Singapore include German, American, Australian, Indian and many more.
With so many schools on offer for expat families, Singapore offers a comprehensive selection of curricula for students at all educational levels, including secondary school.
