Preparing for international studies

The Upper Secondary Programme is a cohesive, balanced and demanding 3-Year course of study (Pre-IB to IB2), with final examinations that prepare students for success at university and employment. 

The educational philosophy of the IB is the governing aim of the Upper Secondary, as the completion of the IB is the goal of the students and the OIS programme. Known for its intellectual rigour and high academic standards, the IB and the Upper Secondary at OIS also place strong emphasis on the ideals of international understanding and responsible citizenship.

The Pre-IB and IB Diploma programmes at OIS typically have 120-140 students enrolled. Applications are considered on the basis of the student’s previous academic records, letters of recommendation, and an interview with the Upper Secondary Principal.

Apart from a strong academic programme a range of activities is available throughout the Upper Secondary, including the possibility of participation in Model United Nations conferences, yearbook club, student council, a few sports clubs and a drama production.

Here at OIS we are proud of not only our highly qualified staff who promote and support intellectual growth and excellence in all aspects of learning and foster a passion for learning, but also of our students who are engaged, caring, cooperative, serious about their learning and achieve excellent academic results.
