Diploma Programme

IB DP Programme

 

 

 

At HIS we follow an inquiry-based curriculum framework which was designed to meet the needs of students living in diverse international communities. Using the expectations and learning aims from the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme guidelines for content and conceptual approaches, HIS faculty provide learning experiences for students that challenge and extend their understanding for students in High School, grades 9-12.

 

 

 

 

Students take courses in the following subject areas to gain content knowledge and apply their understanding in creative and practical manners:

  • Language and Literature
  • Language Acquisition
  • Individuals and Societies
  • Sciences
  • Mathematics
  • Fine Arts and Performing Arts
  • Theory of Knowledge
  • CAS

The HIS reality is that students are involved in a variety of activities outside the classroom that extend their personal knowledge through inquiry learning opportunities, individualized research and exploratory learning experiences, and community-based projects. The international mindset is evident in classes as students collaborate in multiple languages using their own cultural perspectives to share insight into the issues they are discussing.
