A DIFFERENT AND INTENSE WAY OF LEARNING

The IB Curriculum works six areas of knowledge, which are organized around a core constituted by the mandatory requirements to obtain Diploma IB.

THE CORE

A. Theory of knowledge

The students have to reflect on the way thanks to which they have come to know what they know, obtaining in this way a critical capacity applicable to any subject.

B. Creativity, action and service

The objective of the IB is the integral formation of the person. This includes developing humanitarian feelings and citizen responsibility that are reached when students look beyond themselves.

A. Monograph

The candidates for the Diploma must carry out an original research and write a work of about 4000 words.


THE SIX AREAS

FIRST LANGUAGE
The IB allows to study more than 80 different languages, generically called A1 languages. The objectives are that the student uses, both orally and in writing, their language and generate interest in literature in the student.

SECOND LANGUAGE

The English B (high level) language course offers students who already have a certain base, to deepen the knowledge of the language through a communicative orientation. The objective is that students understand what they listen to and can speak, read and write the language through the studied texts.
