IB Diploma Programme

American International School of Brazzaville *[062859]* is a candidate School for the IB DP programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that American International School of Brazzaville believes is important for our students.

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme, or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit www.ibo.org.

After authorization, AISB will offer three graduation pathways: IB Diploma, High School Diploma, Individualised Diploma. All students will have assistance to pursue their chosen paths, ensuring that these paths are suitable for their individual personal growth. This is contingent upon the student’s interests, preferred learning methods, and aspirations for post-secondary education.

AISB Graduation Pathway

International Baccalaureate Diploma (Grades 11-12)

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (DP) is a specialized educational program for students aged 16-19. It aims to nurture students who possess a well-rounded understanding and proficiency in various subjects, while also promoting their physical, intellectual, emotional, and ethical growth.

The IB Diploma Programme curriculum is made up of six subject groups and three core elements. The Six Subject groups are:

  • Studies in language and literature
  • Language acquisition
  • Individuals and societies
  • Science
  • Mathematics
  • The arts

The three core elements are:

  • Theory of knowledge – a course where students contemplate the essence of knowledge and how we ascertain what we claim to know.
  • The extended essay – an autonomous, self-guided research project culminating in a 4,000-word paper.
  • Creativity, activity, service – a project where students engage in activities related to creativity, physical activity, and community service.

AISB High School Diploma (Grade 9-12) 

The AISB School Diploma is comparable to a US High School Diploma, providing more options in subjects, depth of study, and assessments. Students are required to be enrolled with a full timetable from Grades 9 to 12.

AISB Individualized Diploma (Grade 9-12) 

This diploma offers a chance for students in our Learning Support program to enhance their potential and self-reliance by focusing on personalized goals outlined in their Individual Education Plan (IEP) and Transition Plans.
