International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme at OWIS
One World International School is an authorised IB World School and as such can offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). The IBDP is an academically rigorous two-year pre-university programme recognised worldwide. It is noted for its high academic standards, preparing students for colleges and universities around the world. Through its holistic curriculum, it supports students in balancing their studies and extracurricular activities.
At OWIS, we believe the IB Diploma Programme is designed to meet the needs of our students between the ages of 16 and 18. The IBDP stretches our students by pushing them beyond the comfort zone of their two or three strongest subjects. This opens the doors to potential paths for future interests and studies.
Since September 2019, we started the delivery of the diploma programme to our first cohort of Grade 11 students. IBDP students take up the three IBDP core requirements (Creativity, Activity and Service; Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge) and six academic subjects across the IB six subject groups (3 Standard Level and 3 Higher Level) as follows.
Group 1: English A Language and Literature (SL and HL)
Group 2: French B Language Acquisition (SL and HL)
French ab initio (SL)
Mandarin ab initio (SL)
Group 3: Business Management (SL and HL)
Economics (SL and HL)
Geography (SL and HL)
History (SL and HL)
Group 4: Biology (SL and HL)
Chemistry (SL and HL)
Physics (SL and HL)
Group 5: Mathematics Analysis and Approaches (SL and HL)
Group 6: Film (SL and HL)
As our Diploma Programme continues to grow, we hope to offer more subject choices to our next incoming cohort.
At OWIS, we are committed to building the character, values, independence and skillsets in our students. Our IBDP students are our student role models for the IB Learner Profile Attributes. As a school community, we have a range of extracurricular activities to help our students cultivate the academic, personal, social skills and values they need to be successful in their future pursuits. We are firmly committed to ensure our students flourish physically, intellectually, ethically and emotionally at OWIS.
