High School Curriculum

The IB Diploma Programme requires students to undertake 3 compulsory modules: the Theory of Knowledge (TOK), Extended Essay (EE), and Creativity, Activity, and Service (CAS). These modules encourage the transfer of skills across academic disciplines and enable students to illustrate their learning from both the Middle Years and Diploma Programmes. 

High School students explore the nature of knowledge in the programme's Theory of Knowledge course and undertake an in-depth research project to demonstrate independent learning skills in the Extended Essay module. To excel in the essay module, students must show evidence of thorough research skills while exploring a particular topic.

The after-school activities programme is updated regularly and can be obtained from the school at the start of each term. 
ASAs run on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. They begin at 3:00 pm and end at 3:50 pm.

Community Voices


An Hyeon Jeong | FROM CLASS OF 2017

We were always together. It was so fun and I was so happy with our Grade 12 friends. Everyone had helped me when I couldn’t catch up with the conversation and class. I was very grateful to everyone. Every moment was precious. What I have learnt from the IBDP: How to set up the goal. How to be an independent person and to be cooperative. Most memorable moment: Our daily lives were the most memorable in my school life. We knew our trademark (habit, quote, facial expression, …). That time was for understanding each other and being closer.


Kim Han Bin | FROM CLASS OF 2017

EIS is the place that is full of my high school memories. I met best friends and best teachers there. I felt very comfortable at school like I was at home. I would miss the time I spent with my friends in the small room to study and the small swimming pool where I really worked hard to carry out the EE experiment. What I have learnt from the IBDP: I learned the value of time management and independent learning skills. There were lots of tasks such as IA and WT that I needed to submit by the deadline. Most memorable moment: My most memorable moment was the lunch time we spent with each other. After we ate lunch, we always gathered in the homeroom. We always competed to take bean bags and talked about daily life. Every day was full of different moments. I just could not forget the moment that we sat around together after lunch.
