Overview  
At ABWA the students are provided with the option of continuing their international education after Grade 10. To facilitate this, we offer the IB Diploma Program and the Cambridge A level program. Both the curriculum's encourage students to be internationally-minded, to think critically and challenge assumptions within today's complex and well connected world. The school conducts an orientation for the external and internal parents of Grade 10 and during this session the specifics of the programs are shared to enable and equip the students to make an informed choice.
history of ib program  
The IB Diploma Programme, founded in 1968, is an international pre-university course of study that leads to examinations. It is available in English, French and Spanish, and is designed for highly motivated students in the final two years of high school. It currently works with 3,630 schools in 146 countries to develop and offer four challenging programmes to over 1,115,000 students aged 3 to 19 years. The Diploma Programme is a comprehensive and demanding academic experience that allows students to fulfil the requirements of their state or national education systems. The DP incorporates the best elements of national systems, without being based on any singleone.
about the Program  

DP assessment is criterion-referenced: each student's performance is measured against well-defined levels of achievement. Scores reflectknowledge and skills relative to set standards applied equally to all schools. Academic judgments about candidates work rest with over 5,000 examiners worldwide, led by chief examiners with international authority in their fields.

The DP curriculum aims to develop in students the ability to reason for themselves, rather than merely accumulate facts. It provides a through education in a broad range of subjects.

section head’s message  
Shalini John
IBDP Head
At ABWA our mission is to nurture the innate potential of our students and mould them into passionate, committed, competent, sensitive, value-based individuals with leadership qualities. The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. The mission of ABWA & IB DP have been integrated and bought together to achieve excellent breadth and depth of knowledge and to help students flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically. The students are encouraged to study at least two languages, excel in traditional academic subjects. The core components of the DP add an all new dimension to the learning. The students explore the nature of knowledge through the programme’s unique Theory of Knowledge course. The Extended Essay asks students to engage in independent research through an in-depth study of a question relating to one of the DP subjects they are studying. The three strands of CAS engages students in exploring and extending ideas, physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle and collaborative and reciprocal engagement with the community in response to an authentic need. We emphasize on developing non- academic skills and preparing them for further education and career. The Internship program and the career counselling leads students to doors they thought never existed and pursue their passion. It gives me great pride in stating that at our school we place paramount importance to the process; not just the product and making our students lifelong learners.
