Academic

EIS is authorised by the International Baccalaureate (IB) Organisation as an IB World School. Our IB programme is divided into the Primary Years Programme (Grades 1–5), the Middle Years Programme (Grades 6–10), and the Diploma Programme (Grades 11–12). The IB aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

The IB is world renowned for its high academic standards, commitment to multiculturalism and focus on developing skills that will prepare students for success in future educational endeavours and life in a global world. To learn more about the IB, visit www.ibo.org.

IB All The Way

The International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes aim to do more than other curricula by developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who are motivated to succeed. 

The programmes strive to develop students who will build a better world through intercultural understanding and respect. 

The IB's programmes are different from other curricula because they:

  • Encourage students of all ages to think critically and challenge assumptions.
  • Develop independently of government and national systems, incorporating quality practice from research and our global community of schools.
  • Encourage students of all ages to consider both local and global contexts.
  • Develop multilingual students.




A continuum of international education 

IB provides a continuum of education, consisting of three programmes that are united by the IB's philosophy and approaches to learning and teaching. The programmes encourage both personal and academic achievement, challenging students to excel in their studies and in their personal development. 

Quality practice

IB programmes incorporate quality practice from national and international research and the IB global community. They encourage students to be internationally-minded, within a complex and hyper-connected world. 

Students learn how to learn 

Students are able to take responsibility for their own learning and understand how knowledge itself is constructed; this is further to the unique theory of knowledge (TOK) course. They are encouraged to try different approaches to learning and to take responsibility for their own educational progress.

This initiative supports students preparing to go to university with employable skills for part time work in the café sector – giving them an opportunity to supplement funds while studying… and of course beyond. Led by Mr. Nat Paolone from Silvi Coffee Roasters, students will learn about the agricultural processes for coffee, coffee regions, coffee science, basic roasting techniques, various brewing methods, with a focus on barista skills. Students will be expected to make a minimum of 100 espresso-based drinks during the course to easily enter a café for employment.
