IB Program

EMC currently is not an IB school, but is applying for running the IB programs for students aged 16-19.

The International Baccalaureate (IB) program is a rigorous, internationally recognized curriculum and diploma program for students in high school. The program is offered in over 150 countries and is recognized by universities worldwide. It is designed to develop students who are well-rounded, critical thinkers and who have a strong sense of international-mindedness.

The IB program consists of three main components:

  1. The IB Diploma Programme (IBDP), which is a two-year course of study for students aged 16-19.
  2. The IB Middle Years Programme, which is a two-year course of study for students aged 11-16.
  3. The IB Primary Years Programme, which is a two-year course of study for students aged 3-12.

In order to earn an IB diploma, students must take a set of required courses, complete an extended essay, participate in community service, and take exams in six subjects: one from each of the following categories: studies in language and literature, language acquisition, individuals and societies, sciences, mathematics, and the arts.

IB programme is considered to be more challenging than standard high school curriculum, the program is known for its emphasis on critical thinking, research, and international-mindedness.


The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) is a rigorous and challenging educational program for students aged 16-19. It is designed to provide students with a well-rounded education that prepares them for success at university and beyond.

The IBDP curriculum consists of six subject groups: Studies in Language and Literature, Language Acquisition, Individuals and Societies, Sciences, Mathematics, and The Arts. Students must choose one subject from each group, with the exception of the Arts where students can choose two.

In addition to these subjects, students are also required to complete three core components: the Extended Essay, Theory of Knowledge (ToK) and Creativity, Action, Service (CAS). The Extended Essay is a research paper of up to 4,000 words on a topic of the student's choice, while ToK is a course that encourages students to reflect on the nature of knowledge and how we know what we claim to know. CAS requires students to participate in a range of activities that promote personal development and engagement with the community.

The IBDP is internationally recognized by universities and employers, and it is highly respected as a rigorous and challenging program that prepares students for success at the next level of education.
