The International Baccalaureate is a two-year pre-university course of study taught in over 2,300 schools around the world. Its original purpose was to create a demanding educational programme which could respond to the challenges of a globalised world.
The International Baccalaureate is a very demanding, well-balanced programme that places emphasis on critical thinking, on written and oral communication skills and on the international perspective. The purpose of the programme is to develop the students’ individual talents and teach them to relate their classroom experiences with the reality of the outside world.
As the IB Diploma is regarded by universities both in Peru and overseas as satisfying entry requirements, Diplomates enjoy a smooth transfer from school to university, often with the bonus of course credits.
San Silvestre School has been offering this programme since 1992, obtaining outstanding results.
