-          Three core elements:

Extended Essay (EE)

It is a written research paper on a topic chosen by a student. It should contain about 4000 words. The student explores and describes the issue of interest related to one of the six subject groups. In order to write the Extended Essay, the student conducts his own research, and all the work takes a form of a coherent scientific work. The process of creating EE is based on a cooperation with a teacher-supervisor.

Theory of Knowledge (TOK)

It is a course which aims at familiarizing students with the nature of knowledge and with the question: how we know what we claim to know. Each student is expected to complete a course of 100 hours (2 lessons a week over two years). In order to fulfill the course requirements students have to make a presentation and write a 1600 word essay.

Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS)

It shapes students’ personalities, development and sensitivity through active participation in various forms of social, cultural or physical activities, eg. in social or community work (service), athletics or other physical activities (activity), and creative activities (creativity). The guideline for the minimum amount of CAS activity over the two-year programme is approximately 3–4 hours per week.

The externally assessed examinations are given worldwide in May. Each student has to take 6 exams. Additionally, candidates must complete all of the requirements for the EE, CAS and TOK.

High School with Bilingual Units in Boguchwala is a candidate school* for the Diploma Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy – a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.

* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
