International diploma for 22 students.

THE Bahrain School has announced a 100 per cent success rate in its two-year International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme. All 22 Bahrain School students participating in the university-recognised programme passed the final examinations and received the IB diploma.

Student Laith Tafesh, was one of only a handful of over 747,000 IB students worldwide to have obtained the maximum of 45 points in the programme.

The IB is a series of three programmes for students aged between three and 19 aimed at helping to develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalising world.

The programmes are currently available through 2,719 IB World Schools in 138 countries around the globe.

The IB Diploma Programme, for students aged 16 to 19, includes a curriculum and pedagogy, student assessment appropriate to the age range, professional development for teachers and a process of school authorization and evaluation.

In addition to their academic subjects, the students of the IB diploma must submit a demanding 4,000-word research paper, known as an extended essay, and complete a minimum of 150 hours of creative, active and service hours.
