Learning Methodologies

How do children learn differently with the IB-DP at our school in Beirut?

The IB program begins in Grade 11, upon successful completion of Grade 10.

We don’t restrict any of our students from entering the IB program (provided that they meet the Ministry of Education’s requirements) or from taking IB course s(where applicable). There is no entry exam or qualification. We believe that each individual is capable of showing their worth to the program and should be given the opportunity to try.

However, we do want you to know that the IBDP is a rigorous high school program held to international standards - not those set by our school or by Lebanese ministries. In fact, IBDP exams are flown in completely sealed and sent back to the IB Organization offices for correcting.
Students who opt for this type of diploma at our Beirut international school should be ready to meet its exacting demands.

One of our school counsellors would be happy to discuss the option with you and help you decide if you should enroll in the program.
ATTENTION!
Please also note there is a fee for the IBDP examination, which parents should be prepared for. The base cost for the program is not different than other private high school programs in Beirut.

You should be aware that the terms, “Grade 11” and “Grade 12” are referred to as “IBDP 1” and “IBDP 2” respectively in this program. These are ‘credit equivalents’ for most universities and many governments. However, IBDP 1 and 2 are often reflective of outstanding academic achievement in the world of higher education since they are considerably more challenging than typical high school programs.
