The programme also has a goal of developing people who can make a difference in the world.
Alexander Academy is committed to internationalism and fostering a sense of global citizenship as well as creating a safe and rich learning environment for all students. Alexander Academy embraces technology as a fundamental tool for enhancing learning in the 21st century. We are dedicated to providing educational programs that inspire students to follow independent paths to success. Our teachers are committed to ensuring that each student has the opportunity to challenge themselves academically, enabling them to reach their personal level of academic excellence.
The IB Diploma Programme (DP) is an academically challenging and balanced programme of education with final examinations that prepares students, aged 16 to 19, for success at university and in life beyond. It has been designed to address the intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being of students. The programme has gained recognition and respect from the world’s leading universities.
The IB Diploma is possibly the most distinguished academic credential a high school student can earn. IB courses provide students with the solid, well-rounded education they will need to succeed in our highly competitive global society. Those who complete the Diploma Programme may enjoy a competitive edge in admission to any college or university in the world. IB graduates report that taking IB classes helped them immensely. Students learn how to prioritize, focus, write and think. IB graduates feel well-prepared to tackle almost any assignment that comes their way while pursuing post-secondary education. In addition, students who receive good scores in their IB courses, often receive advanced placement and university credit.
