Harrow Bengaluru was pleased to welcome representatives of the IBO to the school in April to review the school’s preparation for the launch of the IB Diploma in August 2024. The result was a shining endorsement of the school and full confirmation of our readiness to lead the way as an IBDP school. The post visit report, amongst many warm acknowledgements, specifically highlighted the wonderfully open and respectful nature of our students, our exceptionally equipped science labs and the excellence of our globally diverse and outstandingly qualified faculty.  
Benefits of the IB
The IB curriculum is deliberately flexible, empowering students, teachers, and schools to personalize an education that is appropriate to their culture, context, needs, interests and learning ability. Through this local and global context, students connect their learning experiences to their real-world experiences, taking action to make a difference in their community, building practical problem-solving skills, critical thinking, and a lifelong sense of inquiry.
In the IBDP students study six subjects in total throughout the duration of the two-year programme, as well as the DP core. Made up of the three required components, the DP core aims to broaden students’ educational experience and challenge them to apply their knowledge and skills. Students mature and thrive through this core curriculum that builds their skills to value and comprehend different viewpoints and express their own with confidence, while further building and developing their capacity for self-directed learning. The extended essay provides an outlet for students to explore their passions and apply their independent research skills in preparation for future studies at university and beyond. The CAS element of the programme provides a structured way for students to give back to their local community and pursue their creative and sporting passions.
We look forward to our first batch of students having the exciting opportunity to embrace the IB Diploma programme in August 2024, alongside our highly successful A level curriculum.
