INDONESIA NATIONAL CURRICULUM (SMA)
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme (DP)
We are currently exploring the option of introducing the International Baccalaureate curriculum to SBB.
What is the DP?
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) is for students aged 16-19.
Research suggests that there are many benefits to choosing the Diploma Programme (DP). The programme aims to develop students who have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge – students who flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically.
The DP curriculum
The Diploma Programme (DP) curriculum is made up of six subject groups and the DP core, comprising theory of knowledge (TOK), creativity, activity, service (CAS) and the extended essay.
Through the Diploma Programme (DP) core, students reflect on the nature of knowledge, complete independent research and undertake a project that often involves community service..
The three core elements are:
Theory of knowledge, in which students reflect on the nature of knowledge and on how we know what we claim to know.
The extended essay, which is an independent, self-directed piece of research, finishing with a 4,000-word paper.
Creativity, activity, service, (CAS) in which students complete a project related to those three concepts.
The six subject groups are:
Studies in language and literature
Individuals and societies
Assessment and exams
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) assesses student work as direct evidence of achievement against the stated goals of the Diploma Programme (DP) courses.
Who is the DP for?
The Diploma Programme (DP) is open to any student aged 16 to 19, at schools that have been authorized to implement the programme.
Pathway to university and employment
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) is recognized and respected by the world’s leading universities, and evidence suggests that higher rates of DP students go on to university and higher education study than non-IB students.
