The Best Education For Your Child Starts From Making The Right Choices

Every parent wants their child to have a "quality education". For the best chance at success, students need a program this is well-rounded, the foundation of which is the curriculum system.

There are a number of choices when it comes to curriculum systems, with the world's four major high school offerings being: A-Level, American Advanced Placement and AP Courses, VCE, and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP).

Why choose the IBDP course?

At its core, the IB course provides a structure for education in intelligence, emotion, personal development, and social skills for students aged 3-19.

An IB Education is also an international education, as it promotes cultural integration, with its own culture as the core. Students studying IB still master the knowledge required by the national syllabus of their country, but they have the advantage of mastering higher-level learning skills and thinking methods under the IB philosophy.

Importantly, most well-known universities around the world accept IB students, with some universities offering IB graduates credits towards their further studies.

What kind of child is the IBDP course suitable for?

IBDP, AP and A-Level courses all include core subjects such as mathematics, science, language, sociology, etc. However, only IB focuses on conceptual learning, while AP and A-Level courses focus on factual learning (knowledge learning).

To achieve success in an IB course, students can't just be knowledge absorbers, but must be knowledge creators. Isn't it the original intention of most parents to raise children who love thinking – and can do so innovatively?
