International Baccalaureate courses are rigorous. They are taught at the college level and cover extensive bodies of knowledge. Before enrolling in the IB program, students should—in consultation with their teachers, family, and the IB coordinator—carefully plan their academic and extracurricular schedules for the following year to accommodate the demands of IB coursework. More information about IB courses, enrollment and all relevant forms is available in the AISV IB Handbook 2017-2019.
Once you have completed the consultation, you will choose six IB courses in accordance with the IB Diploma requirements. For each course selected, approval must be obtained by the current subject teacher. Once admitted to six IB courses, a student is expected to remain in those classes for two years. Under exceptional circumstances, a change of course may be requested within the first Quarter of 11th grade with the use of the Course Change Application Form. Please note that IB courses are offered contingent upon sufficient enrollment in the class.
Enrollment for Current AISV Students
The IB enrollment process begins in 10th grade when students are introduced to the IB Diploma Programme and the General Regulations and begin to consider their course options. Students and their families must read over the materials carefully and meet with the IB Coordinator in January to discuss their plans. As part of this process, students also speak to individual subject teachers who aim to assess their strengths and weaknesses with an eye toward the selection of appropriate higher level and standard level courses.
Students currently enrolled in the 10th grade at AISV must submit the following documents to the IB Coordinator by February 15th in order to be considered for the IB program:
