The Canadian International School of Beijing (CISB) is proud to offer its high school students the opportunity to obtain both a world recognized Canadian (New Brunswick) high school diploma and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma.
CISB has partnered with the Government of New Brunswick, Canada to offer our students a Canadian high school curriculum. Students will study subjects and fulfill the credit requirements equivalent to that of students studying in New Brunswick. All successful graduates of CISB will receive a New Brunswick issued high school diploma that is recognized across North America and around the world.
CISB high school students can also choose to study the IB Diploma Program (IBDP). CISB has been an IB World School since April 2009 with our first group of IBDP students graduating in the spring of 2011. The Non-profit IB Organization began its development in the 1960's in an international effort to create a common curriculum and universal entrance for students who move from country to country. The program has continued to evolve into one stressing the education of the student as a whole. IB learners strive to be: inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk takers, balanced and reflective.
The IBDP is designed for highly motivated secondary school students aged 16 to 19. The program has earned a reputation for rigorous assessment, giving IB Diploma holders access to the world's leading universities. Successful graduates of the full IB Diploma Program will receive both a Canadian (New Brunswick) high school diploma and an IB Diploma.
