The recent IB Class of 2020 gave feedback regarding their experience over the two years:
“The most beneficial part of participating in the Diploma Programme was to be able to discover a new facet of myself. With the English DP Course extensively designed to make students an ace in their writing and analytical skills, it enhanced my love for books and forced me to dig deeper within myself to find the why to every question and element in book and adversely in the world we live in today.”
Join us to learn how the IB Programme provides students with opportunities to explore and develop their personal and cultural identities and to apply their learning by taking action within their community.
St. Dominic High is one of 3,421 schools offering the Diploma Programme, in 157 different countries worldwide. It is also the first government subsidized school in the Caribbean authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) to offer the Diploma Programme for students aged 16 to 19.
