The IB Diploma is a specifically designed educational program for students in grades 11 and 12.
Monarch Park CI, Parkdale CI, Sir Wilfrid Laurier CI, Victoria Park CI, and Weston CI offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme that gives students first year university credits and is recognized in over 125 countries. The IB Diploma program offers students a rigorous academic program which requires students to study English, a second language, mathematics, science, social science, the arts* and theory of knowledge.
(*Schools are permitted to substitute another IB subject group to fulfill this requirement.)
There are six externally marked exams, 150 hours of extra curricular activities, a university-styled essay, and a philosophy course called Theory of Knowledge. This exciting program gives students a real advantage in applying for post-secondary schools all over the world.
The IB Diploma programme, centred on academic excellence and personal achievement in sports and the arts, will prepare students for the challenges of university anywhere in the world.
There are specific entrance requirements for the TDSB IB Diploma programmes and a preparatory programme that begins in grade 9.
Please contact the IB Diploma Coordinator at the authorized schools for more information and specific entrance requirements.
