This session of Stamford Talks will be focusing on the IBDP program (International Baccalaureate Diploma Program). The IBDP program officially begins for students in Grade 11, however there is a lot of preparation prior to Grade 11 to ensure both acceptance and success into this academically rigorous program. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the mission and values of the IB and how these are expressed at Stamford, including a brief overview of the middle school and high school curriculum and how it prepares your child for the IBDP program.
When deciding if the IBDP is right for your child, there are many considerations to take into account beyond academic, and understanding the program as well as the entry requirements is an important first step.
These Stamford information sessions will help parents understand the core elements of the IBDP and what is expected of students before and after acceptance into the program, as well as paths post-graduation.
The session will cover:
- Broad overview of the IBDP
- Academic and non-academic requirements for entry
- Required courses and electives
- Skills needed for students to be successful in the program
- IB Learner Profile Attributes
- Tips for parents to help prepare their child for the IBDP program
- Learning that supports IB entry
- What can parents expect after graduation
This session is open to all parents who want to learn more about the IBDP program and how they can help prepare their child(ren) for this program.
