Dwight International School offers students three different diplomas. While the IB diploma is recognised by universities as the strongest diploma and the best choice for preparation and entrance for university, both the BC and US diploma options prepare students for entrance into American and Canadian universities. Students who pursue the IB diploma can also concurrently earn the BC and US diplomas, enabling them to graduate with three diplomas!
The IB Programme is one of the world’s most respected pre-university courses of study and provides students with an international benchmark recognized around the globe.
The powerful components of the IB Diploma Programme include concurrent learning across six subject areas and consistent, high academic standards.
The IB Diploma provides graduating seniors with multiple tools to approach study in university and beyond. The IB Diploma gives students a global perspective, ensuring that they will be ready to enter the world’s marketplace with competence, good questions, and a respect for other cultures. The IB’s extracurricular structure is called CAS (Creativity, Action and Service). Dwight offers exciting CASes on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays ranging from photography to boating.
Post-secondary institutions recognize the IB Diploma Programme as superior preparation. Dwight has special agreements with several post-secondary institutions, giving our IB graduate students priority entrance and admission into second year university.
