Join one of the top IB Schools in Lebanon
In 2016, Eastwood International School (part of Eastwood Schools) was one of the first group of schools to bring the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) to the Lebanese populus. In doing so, the school pioneered strategies to upgrade education standards at our Beirut school and, by association, in the country as a whole.

Before the Lebanese Ministry of Education approved the International Baccalaureate (IB) as a qualifying high school diploma, Eastwood had already been offering the program for eligible, internationally-minded students. Pupils around the world who graduate with an IB Diploma often attend top universities. The program has also been confirmed as one which produces better-performing students, based on International Schools’ Assessment.

While our private school in Lebanon has had a long history of producing alumni who attend renowned universities, we believe that adding the IB program to our curricula mix would provide even more opportunities for student achievement and would further set us apart as a top Lebanese school.

About the Program

What is the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program?

The IB Diploma Program (IBDP) is a world-recognized high school diploma option for those seeking the ‘best of the best’ when it comes to academic opportunities. It catapults grade 11 and 12 students into upper education. These graduates start as sophomores who are able to handle university-style teaching. IBDP prepares them for a 21st Century-ready career.
The program aims to help students develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to participate actively and responsibly in a changing and increasingly interrelated world.
The IB curriculum shapes student education differently than other programs, such as the Lebanese Baccalaureate, or even other international programs. It does this by expanding its pedagogical theory beyond ‘fact-based’ academics.
In other words, life skills through community involvement, character development and the acquisition of interdisciplinary knowledge are stressed in its learning outcomes. Students are taught how to research independently in order to become self-taught learners for life.

A second language ability is also required as part of the program’s goal to produce internationally informed, global citizens.
The program aims to help students develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to participate actively and responsibly in a changing and increasingly interrelated world.
LIFE AT EIS
EIS Early Years: The Reggio Emilia Program

The Reggio Emilia Approach is an innovative and inspiring approach to early childhood education which values the child as strong, capable and resilient; rich with wonder and knowledge.
The value of quality, developmentally appropriate early childhood education cannot be overstated. Children who receive high-quality education in their early years reap benefits in their cognitive and social development, and in the development of their language skills and thinking skills in both the short-term and long term.

Did you know we offer the PYP in French?

Eastwood offers the PYP in French due to the significance of the French language to Lebanon’s history, culture, and present day affairs, and due to the rise and growth of French on the global stage. Speaking one of the leading languages of business, education, science, technology, commerce and trade is a form of power and access to greater opportunity, and we aim to provide that power and opportunity to students.
