Quick overview: At SJK, the IB Diploma Program (DP) is held in high school for international students in grades 11-12. The IB Diploma Program is a reliable, meaningful academic experience to continue your studies. Students have the opportunity to take part in a strong program designed to develop their interests.

The wide range of courses offered by SJK allows each student to create an individual program that best suits his interests, strengths, goals. With academic breadth, depth and rigor, the IB DP SJK program develops exploration, time management, problem solving, collaboration skills, learners ready for life outside SJK as confident, independent, globally minded learners.

The IB diploma program aims to develop students who have superior breadth, depth of knowledge, to flourish intellectually, emotionally, physically, ethically. Students reflect on the nature of knowledge, conduct independent research, and take on a project that often includes community service. Teaching is hands-on, student-guided, personalized according to the educational route. The extensive experience is achieved in part through the associated IB curriculum. Experiences Beyond the Classroom:

  • Leadership Opportunities;
  • Community Engagement;
  • Service Delivery Initiatives.

Brief information: At SJK, the IB Middle Years Program (MYP) is held in high school for students in grades 7-10. MYP is an expansive student experience, a class without walls, where students are encouraged to use four main approaches to learning:

  • Communication;
  • Research;
  • Thinking;
  • Self-management.

It is a program in which students learn that “how to learn” is as important as “what you learn”.

MYP is a challenging program that motivates students to establish practical connections between their studies and the real world. Learning is demand-driven, hands-on, student-centered, tailored to their educational path. The breadth of experience is partly achieved through the associated IB curriculum, but this is only part of the story. Collaborative curricula, experiences outside the classroom, leadership opportunities, community engagement, and passion for the arts all add to the student experience.

An integral part of the MYP is programming associated with the design cycle. Students are encouraged to solve real-life problems by following the design business model. The cycle begins by identifying the problem. Using project management skills, students are encouraged to explore possible solutions, develop solution specifications, physically build or build a solution, and then test and “sell” their solution to colleagues.
