IS Manila also offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma, an academically rigorous and challenging program that is recognized in most countries of the world as a university entrance qualification. Students in Grades 11 and 12 may choose to work toward the full IB Diploma or they may take selected courses for a partial diploma. Students are required to take external examinations at the end of each IB course. Participation in this program demands hard work, a mature attitude and self-discipline. However, it is unquestionably an excellent preparation for university level work. A general inquiry to the Guidance Counselor could be made as early as Grade 9 to determine whether or not the IB Diploma is a requirement for entry into university in your country of choice. Choice selection begins in Grade 8 preparatory to the IB courses offered in Grades 11 and 12.
