The International School Laren has been offering the IB Diploma Programme since September 2022. The programme is designed for students aged between 16 and 19 years. It is a unique curriculum, not based on the pattern of a single country, but is a deliberate compromise ​between the specialisation required in some national systems and the breadth of learning preferred in others. In achieving this, students who successfully complete the IB Diploma Programme demonstrate a strong commitment to learning, both in terms of their mastering of a range of subjects and in their development of skills and disciplines necessary for success in our competitive, global world. 
For more details please take a look at the DP Course Selection Handbook 2023-2025
