The High School program at IS Manila is designed to prepare students for college and university admissions. The program culminates in the International School Manila High School Diploma, a recognized qualification for North American colleges and universities.
Beyond minimum graduation requirements, students are advised to take courses that are:
- Academically challenging;
- Appropriate to meet admission requirements of universities in the country in which they intend to study;
- Suitable to their interest and occupational plans.
Although the emphasis is on academic studies, other activities including forensics, sports, art, music and drama contribute to the development of well rounded students. Classroom instruction promotes self-discipline, responsibility and academic excellence. Clubs and organizations support students' unique talents and interests. Officers of clubs learn valuable leadership skills. Fine arts and athletics provide opportunities to pursue special interests and gain an appreciation of culture.
ISM High School students are encouraged to be focused, goal-oriented and academically motivated. They are prepared to succeed at university and in life.
The High School includes Grades 9, 10, 11 and 12. We offer a full High School Program, designed to prepare students for college and university admission, similar to programs offered by High Schools in North America. Students who successfully complete the requirements for graduation earn the IS Manila High School Diploma, a recognized qualification for North American Colleges.
