The IBDP aligns with our core values and we see the IB curriculum as the best pathway to prepare our children for higher education whether in Indonesia or abroad. It is designed to equip students with basic academic skills needed for university study, further education, and their chosen profession. Moreover, the program supports the development of values and life skills needed to live a fulfilled and purposeful life.
The DP curriculum consists of six (6) subject groups, namely language and literature, language acquisition, individuals and societies, sciences, math, and the arts. Aside from completing subject examinations and undergoing internal and external assessments, students must accomplish three core elements of the curriculum.
We support and guide our students all the way
Our counseling support seeks to ensure students can successfully and conveniently adapt to the school system and peer group environment. This way, they can focus on realizing their full potential assisted by their assigned counsellor who will monitor academic progress and assist through challenges.
Personal counsellors further assist in planning for higher education. We organize an annual University Fair to allow students to meet representatives from the world’s leading universities. Our career counsellors serve to guide students as they choose and apply to specific universities that best fit their capacity, academic profile, and God’s call.
Let SPH counsellors navigate your child in finding their ideal university.
Theory of Knowledge (TOK)
The Theory of Knowledge (TOK) course challenges students to consider the ways in which knowledge is developed both individually and communally. Students are challenged to explore the question: How do I know what I know? This engagement with metacognition intends to help students become more thoughtful people who can engage with the complexity of our global world. TOK challenges students to ask big questions, the kind of questions that form and give direction to their lives.
Extended Essay (EE)
Based on a list of approved subjects, students must write an independent research essay investigating a topic within a subject being studied.
Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS)
As a mandatory core program that balances the rigorous academics in IB DP, Creativity, Activity, and Service (CAS) lets students initiate their own experiences and projects under the guidance of CAS advisors. These can be based on student’s personal interests, class discussions, or other ideas. Students usually take part in a variety of experiences that involve joining, leading, and/or initiating student-led clubs, student body committees, or personal projects that contribute to communities. Thus, students become more aware of their personal interests, skills, and talents that facilitate their growth beyond the classroom. Through CAS, SPH students learn how to extend blessings, as they themselves have been blessed.
