International School of Amsterdam – Curriculum

See on Scoop.itInternational Baccalaureate Program

The Diploma Program (DP) is an academically focused curriculum for students ages sixteen to eighteen (grades 11 and 12) preparing to enter university. For students planning to enter most European and Commonwealth universities, the IB Diploma is usually the only guarantee for university admission available to international students. For American universities, successful participation in IB courses can promote university acceptance, while successful completion of IB exams can lead to university course credit and/or advanced university placement. ISA has offered students the opportunity to earn IB credentials since 1980. The school’s record of achievement is directly related to the excellent quality of our teachers and programme. With the support and expertise of the faculty, students operate in an academic learning community environment, which stimulates them to explore and excel. Personal abilities and future goals usually determine a candidate’s curriculum (the combination of HL and SL courses they choose), but the IB programme is structured to accommodate every motivated, sincere and serious student.
