Core and IB Diploma Core


At ISB students in Gr11 and Gr12 all participate in Core, which is a class dedicated to supporting students with four different elements: Theory of Knowledge, CAS, the Extended Essay and College Counselling Seminars.

Students who have opted to take the Personal Choice Diploma attend CAS and College Seminars, during Core. The remaining periods are free.

Students who take the full IB Diploma attend all sessions to help them fulfil the IB Diploma Core and receive guidance through the college seminars.

A calendar rotation is published at the beginning of the academic year to show which sessions are held during the Core period.
