Welcome to the IB Diploma Programme at WVSS!
West Vancouver Secondary School is the longest running International Baccalaureate Programme on the North Shore (1988) and we are proud to offer this academic program to our students. The IB Diploma Programme is an internationally recognized, university preparatory programme that is recognized and respected by universities around the globe as an international university entrance qualification.
The IB Diploma aims to prepare students for university success and develop inter-cultural understanding and respect. IB’s mission is to empower students to create a better and more peaceful world. The IB Diploma curriculum requires that students complete a two-year programme which consists of the study of literature and language, an additional language, individuals and society, the experimental sciences, mathematics and the arts. In addition to its academic demands, students are expected to gain a breadth of knowledge, ideas and experiences as they complete core requirements in Theory of Knowledge (TOK), Creativity Activity Service (CAS) and the Extended Essay (EE). Students who successfully complete their exams are awarded transfer credit from universities.
Current grade nine students are welcome to apply for our Pre-Diploma Programme and current grade ten students are invited to apply for our Diploma Programme.
