The Diploma Programme (Gr 11-12)
An IB Diploma opens many doors. It has become the gold standard for university entrance.
The Diploma Programme is sometimes seen as an enriched course of study only for the academic elite. Our view at Stratford Hall is different. We believe that the DP is accessible to any student who is motivated to do it. As such, our student population is diverse and dynamic. It was once said that in the DP, "students will be expected to work extremely well, but the programme itself is not extreme." Students are meant to challenge themselves, while being themselves and pursuing what many consider to be the best secondary school programme in the world.
The Diploma Programme at Stratford Hall is designed to equip students with the academic skills needed for university study, further education, and their chosen profession. But more important than developing good students, our goal is to develop good people who can make a difference in the world. These traits are encouraged from the classroom, to canoes, to international trips to on-stage and online - all through the IB Learner Profile. The DP at Stratford Hall is designed to give the community of learners the experience of navigating the complexities of living in the 21st century. In the process, students develop the values and skills needed to live a fulfilled and purposeful life.
