High School

In the High School, our role is to nurture the talents of our students and develop their skills through authentic learning experiences that ensure they are engaged members of society. ISB’s approach places value on the student’s health and character development along with their academic performance. Outcomes matter at ISB and the school believes successful students are not defined solely by their attainment in tests and exams, but also by their integrity, empathy, and sense of teamwork. ISB offers a tailored education to prepare young people for achievement and success whatever future direction they choose.

Our academic program balances the breadth of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme with a choice of courses to suit individual student interests. Our High School diploma program is a four-year university preparatory course of study that develops our students as learners and as individuals.

Meanwhile, the High School’s after-school activities provide opportunities for students to excel in sports and performing arts, and we encourage all our learners to take part in a service project or join a community group. These collaborative projects are devised around a common interest and develop real-life skills through learning that integrates different academic subjects.

In grades 11 and 12, our students elect to study the IB Diploma Programme or construct a personalized program, from a combination of IB courses, ISB courses and online courses around their interests and talents. We are confident that ISB’s flexible, interdisciplinary, and project-based approach in High School makes for well-rounded, healthy students capable of excelling in many fields.

IB students also undertake in-depth research into an area of interest in one or more academic disciplines for their extended essay. The program seeks to not only enhance students' academically, but also to nurture their personal and interpersonal development.

High school Counseling:
ISB's Complementary model

In order to increase student access to social-emotional services and curriculum while simultaneously providing dedicated support for career and university planning, the ISB High School has adopted a “complementary model” of counseling students. We have one team of dedicated School Counselors and another of dedicated University and Career Advisors. This model enables us to better help students not only reach their goals, but also arrive there self-aware and resilient, and ready to face the future.
