The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program is a challenging two-year curriculum, primarily aimed at students aged 16 to 19. It leads to a qualification that is widely recognized by the world’s leading universities.
Students learn more than a collection of facts. The Diploma Program prepares students for university and encourages them to:
- ask challenging questions
- learn how to learn
- develop a strong sense of their own identity and culture
- develop the ability to communicate with and understand people from other countries and cultures.
The Diploma Program is one of three programs offered by the IB.
The Eastern School District currently offers this program at Holy Heart of Mary High in St. John's. For more information, please visit the Holy Heart IB Program website: www.hhm.k12.nf.ca/departments/ib_program.htm.
