The International Baccalaureate program 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.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum focuses on students ages 3 to 19 through unique learning styles, strengths, and challenges. With an emphasis on each student as a whole person, the programs address not only cognitive development but social, emotional, and physical well-being.
This aims to develop curious, knowledgeable, and caring young people with adaptable skills to tackle society’s complex challenges and help make a better, more peaceful world. Comprehensive research and over 45 years of practical experience validate the efficacy of IB’s four programs.

Value of Learning
The IB curriculum values learning as an essential and integral part of a student’s everyday life. Its implementation allows schools to evolve in their efforts to:
- Inspire students to ask questions, pursue personal aspirations, set challenging goals, and develop the persistence to achieve those goals.
- Develop knowledgeable students with reasoned ethical judgments and who acquire the required flexibility, perseverance, and confidence to bring about meaningful change, healthy relationships, individual and shared responsibility, and effective teamwork.
To measure and monitor students’ learning progress, IB teachers use a range of assessment strategies. One of them is formative assessments that provide constant feedback used by instructors and students to develop the former’s teaching and help students identify their strengths and weaknesses, including target areas that require improvement. In addition, teachers use summative assessments, which are internationally benchmarked and criterion-referenced, allowing students to be measured against a set of agreed-upon learning outcomes instead of being graded on a “bell curve” typical of norm-referenced assessments.
IB PYP (Primary Years Programme)
The Primary Years Programme or PYP is a comprehensive approach to teaching and learning. The international curriculum model provides guidelines for teaching methodologies, assessment strategies, and what students should learn. It is an excellent introduction to the Middle Years Program, as it offers a framework that meets spiritual, academic, social, physical, emotional, and cultural needs.
*At SPH Sentul City, the IB PYP Programme is applied for Grades 1-5.
IB MYP (Middle Years Programme)
The Middle Years Programme or MYP provides a framework of academic challenges and life skills for students ages 12-16. It naturally follows the PYP and serves as excellent preparation for the rigors of studies in the IB Diploma Programme. The program provides students with discipline, skills, and challenging standards, along with creativity and flexibility.
*At SPH Sentul City, the IB MYP Programme is applied for Grades 6-10
IB DP (Diploma Programme)
SPH offers a Diploma Programme or DP in Years 11 and 12 at all our K-12 schools. This is an internationally recognized program with academic standards allowing students access to universities worldwide. Although this program employs a common international curriculum, IB requires “all students to relate first to their own national identity – their own language, literature, history, and cultural heritage – and identify with corresponding international traditions.” Conceived as a comprehensive two-year curriculum, it allows graduates to fulfill the requirements of various international educational systems.
