The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is respected around the world as one of the most rigorous high school diploma programs. Students select six IB courses at the end of 10th grade and work tirelessly for two years to sit the exams.
KIS International School’s graduating class of 2022 was challenged to handle this trying curriculum entirely during the pandemic. They began their IBDP courses in August 2020 and spent most of the following two years online or in a hybrid model of instruction.
As a result, forty percent of the graduating class undertook the additional challenge of a bilingual diploma, and forty percent also achieved a score of 35 or higher.
KIS’s IBDP average score of 33 continues to be above the worldwide average of 32, with an overall pass rate of nearly 90%. They leave KIS with the lifelong skills that the IB curriculum instills: principled, caring, and knowledgeable risk-takers ready to improve the world.
The students have been expertly guided by our faculty to develop skills in such areas as thinking critically and creatively, problem-solving, reflecting, communicating, social skills, collaboration, self-management, self-motivation, resilience, emotional management, time management, research, and information literacy. These skills allow the students to continue learning throughout their lives and to have what it takes to be the innovators of the future.
Thanks to the outstanding results, the students have been accepted at top universities around the world.
