Complete List IB Schools in Hong Kong (2022)
The International Baccalaureate has increasingly become the de-facto curriculum for international schools in Hong Kong. It has also been growing in popularity with local Hong Kong schools as well. In addition, we are the IB program being implemented across kindergarten (IB PYP), primary (IB PYP) and secondary schools (IB MYP & IB DP) levels.
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is a two-year educational programme primarily aimed at 16 to 18 year olds. The programme provides an internationally accepted qualification for entry into higher education and is recognized by many universities worldwide. The DP Curriculum
The Diploma Programme (DP) curriculum is made up of six subject groups and the DP core. The DP Core includes Theory of Knowledge (TOK), Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) and the extended essay. Through the Diploma Programme (DP) core, students reflect on the nature of knowledge, complete independent research and undertake a project that often involves community service. The six subject groups are:
1. Studies in language and literature 2. Language acquisition 3. Individuals and societies 4. Sciences 5. Mathematics 6. The Arts
Students will take some subjects at higher level (HL) and some at standard level (SL). HL and SL courses differ in scope but are measured according to the same grade descriptors, with students expected to demonstrate a greater body of knowledge, understanding and skills at higher level. Each student takes at least three (but not more than four) subjects at higher level, and the remaining at standard level. Scoring and Grades
The IB diploma is awarded to students who meet the subject requirements, receive a minimum score of 24 points, and satisfactorily complete the core components, including extended essay, theory of knowledge, and creativity, action, service. The highest total available for a Diploma Programme student is 45 points. Scores are based on the grades of 1 to 7 awarded for each of the six subjects, for a total of 42 points, and up to 3 additional
points for the core components. Notable Ranked Schools that Offer the IB DP
