The IB @ AISV

The IB @ AISV

All grade 11 and 12 courses at AISV are IB courses. Students must choose one subject from each of five groups (1 to 5). As the last of their six subjects, students may choose either an arts subject from group 6 or a second subject from groups 1-4. At AISV, students take three subjects at higher level (HL) and three subjects at standard level (SL).

Students must also complete requirements for Theory of Knowledge, Extended Essay, and Creativity, Activity, and Service. Students are also enrolled in a Core Class to help them meet these requirements.

As students select their three HL and three SL courses, they should keep in mind their academic strengths and weaknesses, as well as their future education and career plans. They must also check the course requirements for each subject to ensure they can and will be successful in their selected courses.
