Prepare High School

Across all grades, ISB is committed to challenging and joyful learning with the freedom to explore. In the High School, our role in these formative years for young adults is to nurture the talents of our students and develop their skills through authentic learning experiences that ensure they are engaged members of society. We want to foster thinkers and leaders who are well on their way to finding their place in the world.

ISB’s social-emotional learning approach values students’ 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 adults for achievement and success whatever future direction they choose.

ISB has designed its own programs and cherry-picked the best standards from around the world so that what we are offering is of most benefit to students when they graduate into our fast-changing world.

Our academic program balances the breadth of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme with a choice of courses to suit individual student interests. ISB’s 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, personalized and rigorous approach in High School makes for well-rounded, healthy students capable of excelling in many fields.
