High School in Brief

0 Class, IB DP

High School

All students, including ISoP Middle School, applying to the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP) must successfully pass an English proficiency test.

We offer a 0 class (English language crash course) for students whose English skills do not allow them to enter the IB Diploma Programme and study in English. In 0 Class students have approx. 24 English hours/week, additionally Polish, math, history and science lessons.

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) is an assessed programme for students aged 16 to 19. It is respected by leading universities across the globe. The curriculum is made up of the DP Core and six DP Subject Groups.

The DP Core aims to broaden students’ educational experience and challenge them to apply their knowledge and skills. The three DP Core elements are:

1. Theory of Knowledge (ToK), in which students reflect on the nature of knowledge and on how we know what we claim to know
2. The Extended Essay, which is an independent, self-directed piece of research, finishing with a 4,000-word paper
3. Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS), in which students complete a project related to those three concepts

The six DP Subject Groups are (subject choices vary at IB World Schools):

Group I: Language A – student’s first or best language, including the study of selection of world literature
Group II: Language B, ab initio – second modern language courses or classical languages
Group III: Individuals and Societies – courses of history, geography, philosophy, psychology, ITGS, economics, etc.
Group IV: Experimental Sciences – biology, chemistry, physics
