THE HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM (GRADES 9-12):

  Standards, Framework and Methodology:     Assessment:

As an IB World School, CMIS is committed to the International Baccalaureate Organization's Diploma Program Framework to implement the world's Highest Standards; meeting ALL National Requirements in ALL Content Areas. For the IB Diploma, Students study six subjects selected from the subject groups. Normally three subjects are studied at higher level (courses representing 240 teaching hours), and the remaining three subjects are studied at standard level (courses representing 150 teaching hours). All three parts of the core subjects (Extended Essay, Theory of Knowledge and Creativity, Action, Service) are compulsory and are central to the philosophy of the Diploma Programme. The College Board's Advanced Placement International Diplomas require passing courses in Five of the Six Content Areas of instruction.

 

For the IB Diploma, at the end of the two-year programme, students are assessed both internally and externally in ways that measure individual performance against stated objectives for each subject after completion of the IB program . The AP courses are delivered for the final year of high school. The grading system of both is criterion based (results are determined by performance against set standards, not by each student's position in the overall rank order); validity, reliability and fairness are the watchwords of the Diploma Programme's assessment strategy.
