Hi everyone and welcome to International School Manila for our new arrivals.
I am the International Baccalaureate (IB) and AP coordinator here at International School Manila. I have been at the school since 2010 and prior to that have taught and managed curricula in Amman, Jordan, Caracas, Venezuela and in my home country of the UK.
The IB is the primary high school curriculum for our ISM juniors and seniors with approximately 80% of our students completing the full diploma and the remainder taking a selection of IB courses during their final two years here at ISM. We consider the IB to be the finest college preparatory curriculum available today and our experience has demonstrated it to be a successful in both academic and college matriculation terms.
Here at ISM we pride ourselves on an extremely successful programme with outstanding subject scores and averages, yet we maintain an ‘open door policy’. The programme is non-selective here and we will support all students should they choose to take up the IB challenge. If you would like further information on the IB and its programmes I recommend you visit the website here.
In addition to our IB curriculum we also teach AP US History, AP English Literature & Composition and AP Human Geography and support a number of students each year who choose to sit for further AP exam options. These are usually sat by our grade 10 or 11 students as supplementary to their other IB or regular ISM courses. For further information on these options please contact me and I would be happy to discuss them.
I am happy to discuss the programme, options or class choices at any time and can be contacted via my email firstname.lastname@example.org or by dropping in to my office in the HS Guidance area. My assistant Nyla Caras email@example.com can also book meetings if required.
