The IB Diploma
Glenlyon Norfolk School is proud to be authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme in Grades 11 and 12.
While the IB Primary Years Programme and IB Middle Years Programme operate as a philosophy of education, the DP is a set, enriched curriculum that includes first-year university concepts and material. DP students study English, a second language, mathematics, a science, social studies, a sixth area of study, and the Theory of Knowledge, a required course that explores the nature of values and the essence of truth in various disciplines. Each of these classes challenges students with a broad curriculum, advanced assignments, and intensive exams, all of which are approached with the IB penchant for internationalism and interdisciplinary studies.
How do IB scores affect university admissions? Many universities actively seek out IB Diploma students because of their impressive track record in post secondary studies.
