Why is everyone talking about the IB programme? Is it right for your kid and how do you get your child ready and accepted? Stamford American School helps answer your questions.
As a parent, you want the best education for your child. In Hong Kong, we’re very lucky as there are so many different options open to our kids, but it can be difficult to decide which one is the best fit. To understand what the IBDP (International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme) entails and whether this academically rigorous, inquiry-based approach suits your child, hear it straight from the experts. Stamford Talks are informative sessions held by experts at Stamford American School, a world-class international school offering a rigorous American standards-based and inquiry-driven education for children ages 5 to 18 years old. Two of these upcoming sessions will focus on the globally recognised IBDP.
Understanding IB diploma – Pathway to the World
The IBDP isn’t just about a rigorous academic education, there’s a huge focus on holistic development. The IBO promises that; “The programme aims to develop students who have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge – students who flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically”.
The programme officially begins for students in Grade 11, however, if you want your child to be accepted and succeed there’s a whole lot of prep that needs to be done beforehand. If you’re deciding whether the IBDP is right for your child, there are many considerations to take into account beyond the academic. Understanding the programme as well as the entry requirements is the most important first step.
“Prepping your kids for IBDP – The Stamford Talk” will help parents understand the core elements of the IBDP and what is expected of students before and after acceptance into the programme, as well as the paths available to them post-graduation. You’ll hear all about how Stamford American School’s curriculum prepares kids for the programme and how the IB Diploma can opens doors to your child’s future successes.
