St. Philip of Jesus Becoming an International Baccalaureate School
International Baccalaureate offers a continuum of high quality education that encourages international-mindedness and a positive attitude to learning. It is a rigorous curriculum which prepares our students for the 21st century. It is a continuum of education, consisting of three individual programmes spanning the years from pre-kindergarten to a high school. The curriculum represents the best from many different countries rather than the exported national system of any one. High standards are maintained through active training and support for teachers.
The program is based on the belief that students must first develop an understanding of their own cultural and national identity. All IB students learn a second language and the skills to live and work with others internationally—essential for life in the 21st century.
The programme encourages a positive attitude to learning by encouraging students to ask challenging questions, to reflect critically, to develop research skills, and to learn how to learn. Community service is also emphasized because of the belief that there is more to learning than academic studies alone.
Next year will be the start of an exciting future for SPJ. We have a new vision, new direction and new goals. Together, we can equip our children with the skills necessary to navigate their futures well into the 21st Century.
