International Baccalaureate (IB)

From Grade 11, in collaboration with parents and teachers, students may opt for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, underlining our commitment to personalized pathways for every Beech Hall School Riyadh student. 

The IB Diploma Programme, a two-year international education program, readies students aged 16–19 for university and beyond. It develops creative problem-solving skills, preparing students for an evolving global society. Widely recognized in Europe, Asia, and Australia as an excellent foundation for higher education, parents opt for the IB Diploma Programme for this reason. 

Beech Hall School Riyadh views the IB Diploma Programme as challenging and academically rigorous, emphasizing holistic student development over mere test preparation. Focusing on international-mindedness, compassion, and intercultural understanding aligns with our school’s values. 

A globally respected curriculum, IB graduates often excel at university due to its academic rigor. The programme promotes holistic teaching, fostering intercultural awareness through inquiry, critical thinking, and open-mindedness—all values deeply embedded in Beech Hall School Riyadh’s lower grades. 

The well-balanced curriculum integrates the DP core components: Theory of Knowledge (TOK), Extended Essay, and Creativity, Activity, and Service (CAS). These components encourage reflection on knowledge, independent research, and experiential learning through extracurricular activities, community service, and athletics.
