IB DIPLOMA PROGRAMME AT GIIS

GIIS is an authorized IB school in Singapore offering the most coveted International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme for students aged 16 to 19 years. It is a unique programme shaped by a clearly defined set of values that allows students to flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically.

Our structured and immersive approach, combined with our 9GEMS holistic framework in a tech-savvy environment, helps students have a balanced exposure to activities that shape them into critical thinkers with an inclusive and compassionate personality.

The IB Curriculum

The IBDP Programme is a pre-university qualification best suited for highly motivated secondary students. The curriculum includes the DP core - which comprises Theory of Knowledge, Extended Essay and CAS; while students also have to choose courses from six broad subject groups, to develop specialised knowledge and skills in topics that interest them the most. 

Bilingual Diploma

In addition to the standard diploma of the Diploma Programme (DP), GIIS  ib schools in singapore also offers a bilingual diploma, which includes additional language requirements. A student can earn a Bilingual Diploma by completion of two languages selected from group 1 (studies in language and literature).  A student must take one of the English options from Group 1.  To accomplish a Bilingual Diploma student must take one of the French / Spanish options.

Theory of Knowledge

A core component, it encourages critical thinking that teaches students how to learn, helping them to develop an exceptional knowledge and understanding of the learning process that they can apply to various disciplines and across all their subjects.

Extended Essay

Another mandatory core component, the extended essay is an in-depth study of a focused topic. It is intended to promote high-level research and writing skills, intellectual discovery, and creativity. It is externally assessed and, in combination with the grade of the theory of knowledge, contributes up to three points to the total score for the IB Diploma.

Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS)

This is a core component of the IBDP that encourages students to develop their personal and interpersonal growth by learning through experience and by providing them opportunities for self-determination and collaboration with others. The school focuses on activities and initiatives which develop all seven learning outcomes of CAS. They it motivated students to show initiative and perseverance and to develop collaboration, problem-solving, and decision-making skills. 

DP Core at GIIS

These three core DP components are supported by the facilities and infrastructure at GIIS which provides students a platform to explore, experience and promote their learnings. More importantly, the IB Diploma Programme at GIIS allows for a balanced education as well as  geographic and cultural mobility, all the while broadening students’ educational experiences through application of knowledge and skills.

Technology adds sheen to our educational offerings, while our award-winning holistic framework called 9GEMS adds to the depth of learning students experience during their two year programme.

Data Analytics at GIIS

GIIS chain of schools in Singapore has a unique methodology to check the academic and non-academic progress of our students. We have devised methods and installed platforms which give us raw data on students’ performances inside and outside the classroom.

Data Analytics in academics at GIIS is called the 7S method, in which teachers and coordinators gather stats on a student’s marks in seven different areas of development. This includes school, segment, section, subject, subject-teacher, student and summary. 

Data Analytics in Sports is called SPEDAS, where devices on playgrounds and on the student’s person, capture on-field movement which is converted to data.

Both data are then studied by the teacher to determine progress of the student in all areas of development, and an assessment is done which helps students understand their strengths and weaknesses. 

University Placements

Our career counselling starts in early years for students to make informed choices. Our career counselling department ties up with renowned external consultants for career guidance. Each year, over 100 universities come to the campus with their undergraduate offerings. Our Edufair is an event where we bring students and universities on a single platform, helping them interact, and aiding the students’ choice of higher education. 

We take pride in our IB Diploma Programme students who have received scholarships, grants and admissions in some of the most reputed universities in the world. This includes IVY League schools like Harvard University, Brown University, Yale University etc. as well as other recognised institutions of knowledge like National University of Singapore, London School of Economics, Monash University etc.
