The IB Diploma Programme is considered the Rolls Royce of educational programs globally. Students at the DP level are encouraged to think independently and drive their own learning. Students will also take part in programs of education that can lead them to some of the highest ranking universities around the world while becoming more culturally aware, through the development of a second and most of the times a third language at Eastwood International School. Most importantly students will be able to engage with people in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world, where information is doubling every three years and communities are more connected than ever, through technology.
At Eastwood, students develop strong academic, social and emotional characteristics and they are also more likely to perform academically than students in other programs.
