We are very proud to have attained the status of an IB World School within 13 months. To the staff of the IB Division, this is a much-awaited culmination to the months of rigorous preparation. Our team of highly qualified and experienced teachers are all set to deliver the IBDP courses while integrating the DP core subjects within the curriculum. The following is the testimony from the IBO visiting members after the period of verification.

The IBO visiting members were highly meticulous and thorough during their three-day verification visit. They are very impressed with the school’s facilities and resources, as these are considered key factors for the success of an IBDP Programme. Our facilities have far exceeded the official requirements. The science laboratories have met all safety measures and the library is easily accessible to all students from 7 am - 9 pm for at least 5 days a week. They spoke highly of the highly qualified teachers and commended the DP Coordinator for having a thorough understanding of the Programme. Parents were very supportive of the Programme and gave positive feedback on their children’s development since joining the bridging programme. The IBO visiting members commended our Year 10 bridging programme for preparing our students well in both skills and language ability. They are particularly impressed with the students’ level of English proficiency and the extent of their development of the IB Learner Profile attributes.

 

国际文凭大学预科项目简介

国际文凭组织(IBO)成立于1968年。大学预科项目(DP)的目标是开发一个全面的课程,使学生为将来接受高等教育做好准备。它是一套两年制的,为16至19岁年龄段学生设计的,要求严格的大学预科课程。

该课程旨在鼓励学生成为知识渊博和努力探索的人,但同时也关心他人并富有同情心。大学预科项目十分强调鼓励学生发展多元文化理解、开放的情怀和正确的态度。

国际文凭学习者努力使自己成为具备这样特质的人:积极探究、知识渊博、善于思考、善于沟通、讲究原则、胸襟开阔、富同情心、敢于冒险、全面发展和善于反思。

十年级预备班

我校将在十年级开设预备课程,学制一年。全英文授课(除中文课程外),课程的重点是使学生能适应全英文学习并掌握各科基础知识和概念,学生除了要从以下科目中选修6门科目之外:中文、英文、经济、信息和通信技术、物理、化学、运动科学、数学、视觉艺术和音乐,还要学习相关综合能力课程,如核心问题研究、课题研究、社会实践课程,以培养学生的批判性思维和社交能力。

预备课程旨在帮助学生在语言、学术性思维等方面打好基础,为两年的DP课程学习做好准备。我们对英文非母语的学生选修英语母语课程没有限定。在首届学生中,有五名中国本土学生通过我们在预备班的英语强化课程,将在DP课程中选修英语母语课程。

我校大学预科项目(DP)的招生是根据学生的初中平时成绩、中考成绩、入学测试及面试成绩,择优录取。

Year 10 Bridging Program

The school will have one-year preparatory course in Year 10. All classes are taught in English except for Chinese lessons. The main focus of this course is to prepare students to be able to learn in English and the basic concepts in any of these 6 subjects: Chinese, English, Economics, ICT, Physics, Chemistry, Physical Sciences, Maths, Visual Arts and Music. In addition, we will emplace comprehensive-ability courses to develop students’ critical thinking and social ability which is the Essential Studies,Project Work and Pre-CAS.

The preparatory course aims at helping students to build a good foundation in language, academic thinking, and be prepared for the two-year course in DP. We have no restriction to non-native English speakers to read English as the first language. In our first batch of students, there will be 5 mainland Chinese students studying English as Language A in DP after going through our intensive English preparation programme.

The criteria for our enrolment into the DP course are based on students’ daily performance, the results from senior high school entrance examination and our admission tests and interview.

 

IB教师团队

学校继续在招聘具有优秀资质的教师加盟到目前我们这个富有经验的教师团队。多数教师已任教国际文凭大学预科项目(IBDP)多年,并在之前的教育机构担任重要的角色。他们也被任命为多个科目的IB考官。这个专业团队也包括了中国本土教师,他们中英双语流利,有些是IB特定科目的教师,他们作为顾问在必要时支持中国本土学生的进一步学习。

IB Teaching Staff

The school continues adding highly qualified teachers to the current team of teachers who are richly experienced in their subject areas. Most of them have taught IBDP for several years and held important roles in their previous institutes. They also serve as IB examiners in a number of subjects. The professional team also includes the local Chinese teachers who are fluent in both English and Chinese languages.
