Curriculum offered in Grades XI and XII
The International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB) Programme
NPS International School offers both the IB and CBSE programmes for grades XI and XII from 2010. The IB Diploma curriculum requires that students study six courses at higher level or standard level, thus ensuring breadth of learning in languages, social studies, the experimental sciences and mathematics. In addition, the programme has three core requirements - Theory of Knowledge (TOK), the Extended Essay (EE) and Creativity, Action and Service (CAS) activities, which challenge students to apply their learning to develop broad skills and attitudes. Each student writes an Extended Essay of 4000 words in a subject of their choice, and an essay of 1,500 words in Theory of Knowledge (TOK). The IB Diploma has increasingly been regarded as the 'gold card' in university and college placement.
Increasing numbers of students gain acceptance at colleges like Oxford, Cambridge, LSE and Ivy League colleges in the US every year. They owe their success not only to their IB diplomas but also to their preparation for the admission process. Students at NPS International School would receive inputs and counselling on tests and university choices worldwide.
