TRIPADA SINGAPORE INTERNATIONAL√Č SCHOOL

International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme ( IBDP )

TSI currently is in the Candidacy phase for IBDP and is hopefully waiting for authorization to start IBDP in July 2019

IB is an internationally-recognized school system made up of three educational programmes:
 

  • i. PYP: The Primary Years Programme (Kindergarten to Class 5).
  • ii. MYP: The Middle Years Programme (Class 6 to Class 10).
  • iii. DP: The Diploma Programme (Class 11 to Class 12).with core compulsory subjects as Theory of Knowledge (TOK ) , Extended Essay (EE ) and Creativity, Activity and Service


The IB programme was founded in 1968 by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO), a non-profit educational organisation based in Geneva, Switzerland. In spite of this IB always amalgamates and respects its local flavor and culture .

The IB programme is more practical and application-based. It has a broader spectrum of subjects that lead to all-round development.

IB examinations test students' knowledge, not their memory and speed. There are no examinations till the Middle Years Programme (Class 10). The focus of the IB pedagogy is on 'how to learn' rather than 'what to learn'.

There are no prescribed textbooks; students can choose their own books.

The purpose of IB is to produce global citizens.

But sometimes, the IB programme does use the local curriculum as a base. For example, Hindi can be offered as a second language in the IB Diploma Programme.

The IB curriculum is challenging than But the challenge is in the quality of assignments, not in the amount of work assigned.
