International Baccalaureate

Diploma Programme


The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) is an assessed programme for students aged 16 to 19. It is respected by leading universities across the globe. The curriculum is made up of the DP core and six subject groups. Made up of the three required components, the DP core aims to broaden students’ educational experience and challenge them to apply their knowledge and skills.

The three core elements are:

  • Theory of knowledge, in which students reflect on the nature of knowledge and on how we know what we claim to know.
  • The extended essay, which is an independent, self-directed piece of research, finishing with a 4,000-word paper
  • Creativity, activity, service (CAS) in which students complete a project related to these three concepts.
  • The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools, governments, and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.
  • These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate, and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

The IB Diploma is an internationally recognized and highly respected pre-university qualification based on a rigorous, broad, and balanced curriculum that aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, caring, young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

It pleases me as a parent that Yashita is a member of the IBDP curriculum at Oakridge Vizag. Her performance in several courses is a clear reflection of the teacher’s diligence and mentoring. I’m happy that she’s enrolled in a program that will open her eyes to new possibilities while the teachers provide reassuring support. It is wonderful to hear her explain the numerous debates in TOK classes and the progress of her EE research. The reflecting aspect and keeping a balance have helped my daughter grow into a person who makes an effort to succeed in both her extracurricular and academic endeavours. The inclusive curriculum allows the children’s interest to serve as the springboard for learning while fostering a welcoming and exciting environment.

As a parent of a student currently enrolled in the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP), I want to express my deep appreciation for the program. The IBDP’s holistic approach, emphasis on critical thinking, global perspective, and commitment to community service have already had a significant positive impact on my child’s education and personal growth. The dedicated teachers and IB coordinator have provided unwavering support, and we can already see the growth in our child’s academic and personal development.

In conclusion, we highly recommend the IBDP to parents seeking a well-rounded education for their child. It’s clear that this program is setting the stage for our child’s future success.
