International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme
The International Baccalaureate (IB) offers 4 educational programmes: IB Primary Years (Age 3 – 12), IB Middle Years (Age 11 – 14) and IB Diploma/ Career-related Program (Age 15 – 19). Many schools in many countries have adopted these programmes, and in Singapore, the IB education system is taught in several international schools such as Stamford American International School and Anglo-Chinese School (International) Singapore. Compared to the common route taken by many Singaporean students in Singapore, IB programmes are not just focusing on academic excellence, but also developing the young minds to be critical thinkers and remain sensitive to the global issues.
Many international parents in Singapore have chosen to put their children through IB schools as the educational programmes offered are well-known for its high academic standards and the curriculum focuses a lot on creativity and imagination. IB students are encouraged to take a truly global view and analyse their own thinking and effort through the principles of inquiry, action and reflection. That is why IB students develop many core skills for thinking, teamwork, communicating, self-management and research earlier than students in other education system.
It all starts with PYP (Primary Years Programme), which focuses on the development of the student as an inquirer, not just in classroom settings, but in the outside world. IB PYP students are often given questions and challenges to gain the strength with its powerful emphasis on inquiry.
In MYP (Middle Years Programme), the IB framework encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers, while focusing on intellectual challenge. IB students at this stage will start making powerful and relevant connections between their studies and real-world subjects, while boosting their skills in communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement.
Lastly, in IB DP (Diploma Programme), it is academically challenging students and balancing their skills and academic knowledge to prepare them for success in University and beyond.
Well, for a globalist, multicultural environment like Singapore, IB is a perfect programme for international students to learn to study and work with other kids from different cultural backgrounds, fostering a deeper understanding in other cultures.
What makes IB so unique? What are the benefits it has? Well firstly, it encourages and pushes IB students towards personal and academic achievement. Unlike many educational systems which focuses on students doing memorization work, IB programmes encourage students to learn “how to learn” and not install a whole chunk of information into their “memory space”. IB programmes are also developed independently of government and national system, incorporating best practices from research across a global community of schools instead.
However, it can be challenging for many international students coming from different academic backgrounds. Many IB students have come to us over the years, and one of the reasons is because many of them feel burdened and struggle with the curriculum while balancing the extra activities after school. It is no longer a rare sight, as many parents want their child to keep up with the IB syllabus. To help your child balance and cope with his work load, we strongly encourage you to hire a private IB or IGCSE tutor to help ease the struggle your child might face with the curriculum and assignments. It has been proven that IB tuition has been effective to help many international students keep up with the curriculum in class.
