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 other countries. 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.
Our implementation of the IB DP has been demonstrated over time as our graduates have undertaken their higher education around the world and spread blessings wherever they go.
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 that I know? This engagement with metacognition intends to help students become more thoughtful people who can engage 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)
In Creativity, Activity, and Service (CAS), a mandatory core program that balances the rigorous academics in the IB DP, students may initiate their own experiences and projects under the guidance of CAS advisors. These can be based on students’ 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 classrooms. Through CAS, SPH students learn how to bless others as they are blessed by the communities.
